LAS VEGAS—On July 20, a scholarship agreement was signed between the Nevada Consular Corps and the UNLV Foundation in support of UNLV’s “Study Abroad Program.”
The Nevada Consular Corps was formerly established in 1998, and has a membership of 24 Honorary Consuls and two Career Consul Generals.
Career Consul Generals and Honorary Consuls encourage trade, cultural and academic exchange programs between the countries they represent and the State of Nevada.
On this special occasion, it is an academic and cultural exchange program that we are celebrating. The Nevada Consular Corps have partnered with the UNLV Foundation and the UNLV Office of International Programs and established an annual two-thousand dollars ($2,000) scholarship fund. The scholarship will be gifted on an annual basis and divided between two qualifying UNLV students.
