Two new scholarships are now available for students entering SNC Tahoe's Alternate Route to Licensing program.

More Teacher Scholarships Offered

Two additional scholarships have been funded for Nevada teachers who enroll in SNC Tahoe’s ARL graduate teacher’s education program in Reno and Las Vegas. The ARL program, offered at SNC’s Reno and Las Vegas campuses, offers flexible scheduling, allowing students to pursue their degree while working in the classroom. SNC Tahoe awarded 20 scholarships through the program earlier this year as part of statewide effort to resolve teacher shortages.

“Sierra Nevada College is proud to be able to work in partnership with the state of Nevada to help prepare qualified, classroom-ready teachers through the Teach Nevada Scholarship program. By this fall the positive impact of this program will be realized as new teachers enter classrooms in our public school districts.”

– Shannon Beets, Provost and Executive Vice President

The grants, awarded through the Nevada State Board of Education’s Teach Nevada Scholarship (Senate Bill 511), are in response to a severe shortage of qualified Pre K-12 teachers in the state. Nevada students who enroll in SNC’s combined Alternate Route to Licensure (ARL) – Master’s Degree in Teaching programs for spring or summer 2016 are eligible to apply for scholarship consideration.
