All high school seniors planning to pursue some form of post secondary education or training are encouraged each year to complete the Nevada High School Scholarship Application. The selection of recipients is made by the Scholarship Committee. Some scholarships have designated criteria which must be honored. The scholarships are presented during Senior Recognition Night held the Friday evening prior to graduation. The Nevada High School Scholarship Foundation is responsible for disbursing the money. The Scholarship Foundation is supported through many community and personal donations.
Donors are honored at a dinner prior to Senior Recognition Night.
