Now Accepting Applications for the 2019 Pancholi Scholarship for Nevada Educators!
Apply by December 13th for the $2,000 Scholarship
Calling all educators in Nevada: the application period for the second annual Pancholi Scholarship for Nevada Educators is now open. Developed by Dr. Samir Pancholi to help support our next generation of teachers, the Pancholi Scholarship for Nevada Educators will award one recipient $2,000 to be used for tuition and educational expenses as they pursue a degree in education.
Dr. Pancholi is a lifelong student, educator, and Vegas-based entrepreneur who is passionate about supporting our schools and teachers on both a local and national level. And with Nevada facing a shortage of teachers, he is eager to help those who have felt the call of the classroom.
Who is eligible for the scholarship?
Any current Nevada resident who is interested in a career in education and is pursuing a degree is welcome to apply for the $2,000 scholarship—whether you are a high school senior, current education major, or considering returning to school.
Eligible candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Must be a Nevada resident;
- Must be pursuing a degree or career path in an education-related field at an institution of higher learning the following semester;

This award money is to be used toward tuition and educational expenses, including but not limited to textbooks, supplies, technology, on-campus dining, housing, and transportation.
