At Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, we know how hard our girls and their families work to build women of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. We are excited to help in this journey by offering scholarships to those who qualify.
For girls, the Girl Scout Scholarship may cover a percentage of the membership fee or uniform costs or one camp session for their first year of Girl Scouting.
Girl Scouts must participate in GSSNV product programs and meet the requirements for a participation patch to qualify for additional scholarships.
Troops/Groups should plan a self-sustaining budget. Through money-earning activites and adequate saving/spending plans, troops/groups should be able to cover activity expenses and membership/troop fees/uniforms.
For adults, the Girl Scout Scholarship covers a percentage of the membership fee. Adults must take on Troop Leader position or Service Unit Team position to be eligible for a scholarship and meet the requirements of qualifying for a scholarship. Volunteer Essentials must be complete before a qualifying adult scholarship will be processed.
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada reserves the right to determine who qualifies for a GSSNV scholarship. Application will be reviewed by GSSNV Staff. The amount of funds granted varies on qualifications and available funds.
Complete the Scholarship Application and attach a copy of one of the following:
- Your 2018 (or later) tax return OR,
- A current TANF, SNAP, or Medicaid approval letter with the applicant's name, OR
- A foster custody letter
Please note: If one of the required documents listed above is not received within 10 business days of submitting your request, your request will close and need to be resubmitted.
Please allow 5 business days for your request to be reviewed. You will receive a determination email from the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada outlining the details of the scholarship and next steps.
Scholarships are awarded at 40% to 100% of total costs and are
determined based on federal tax guidelines.
If approved for a full or partial scholarship, the parent or
guardian will be responsible for the remaining balance which can be
paid online or in person at the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Council Office.
Please note: Memberships will not be active until the balance
