Scholarship Program

Project 150 is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 community-based organization with a primary objective to increase the viability and recognition of youth in Southern Nevada. Project 150's Scholarship Program is one of the many vehicles used by our organization to ensure that students are provided assistance to achieve higher education goals.  

This program is open to all high school seniors and current college students who would like to apply for financial assistance to attend any of Nevada's higher education institutions. Applications are accepted beginning in February and close in April. Awards are announced in late May/Early June and awardees are invited to the annual Award Luncheon in June.

Are you interested in donating to the scholarship fund and sponsoring a student's higher education? All funds received are distributed directly to the educational institutions and pay for student's tuition, books, and fees. Average award is $2500 per student per semester.
