  • Any college student enrolled in a Nevada college or university is eligible to apply, including students who will have graduated at the end of the 2017 fall semester or in spring 2018.

Nevada residents attending a school outside Nevada are also eligible to apply. You do not need to be a political science major or be involved in student government to be considered. We encourage students with a variety of interests and backgrounds to apply because we believe that everyone who attends benefits in some way; academic and cultural diversity make NEW Leadership Nevada an even more enriching and impactful program.
