Eligibility for Millennium may change to aid state budget deficit

Part of the Gov. Steve Sisolak’s proposed plan to make up for the budget shortfall is changing eligibility of the Millennium scholarship. 

The Nevada System of Higher Educations stated they do not want the 2,200 students affected by this bill to be punished for facing the social and financial disruptions brought by the pandemic. 

Part of Sisolak’s plan was to apply $2 million from the Millennium scholarship towards the state’s general fund. Previously, lawmakers were told that the scholarship has sufficient funds to make it through the end of the fiscal year and that it can access the state funds to make up for any shortfalls. However, the scholarship fund would be empty at the ends of the fiscal year. A more permanent solution is still needed.

Currently, in order for a student to be eligible for the scholarship, they must have a minimum GPA of 2.75 every semester after completing 30 credits. The possible changes for eligibility have not been disclosed yet. 

Some lawmakers suggest that students can seek exemption from the changes by filling out a waiver form, but others do not want students to adversely affected by forgetting to fill it out.
