Miss Nevada Foundation Scholarships

The Miss Nevada Scholarship Foundation offers thousands of dollars in scholarship and cash prizes annually to the young women who compete in our state competition.

In 2019, our organization awarded $40,500 in scholarship awards and over $50,000 in in-kind prizes to our winners and competitors. A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Feritta Family Foundation for providing Miss Nevada’s scholarship and to Dixie State University who graciously provided a $9,000 tuition waiver to our Miss Nevada 2019 & $4500 tuition waivers to both the first and second runner ups.

We strive to empower the young women who compete in our program and help them further their education by offering scholarships for them to reach their personal and professional goals.
