401 High School Seniors Apply for GBC NV Promise Scholarship

Mentors needed for upcoming class

401 High School Seniors Apply for GBC NV Promise Scholarship graphic.

GBC received a total of 401 Nevada Promise Scholarship applicants for the 2019-2020 school year. Applicants are Nevada High School seniors who plan to attend GBC next fall. Nevada Promise will provide up to 3 years of tuition and mandatory fee coverage at Great Basin College.

"The Nevada Promise Scholarship makes college accessible for Nevada students who could not see a pathway to higher education. With over 400 Promise applicants, GBC is still requesting the help from community members all over the state to volunteer as a mentor for these students," said Cassandra Stahlke, GBC retention coordinator.

Applicants are partnered with a mentor who then guides them through their early college years. If you would like to sign up to be a mentor and help a student take the next step to bettering themselves please visit
