Ila Warner Nevada DAR Scholarship
The Nevada State Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, is proud to offer scholarship awards to be distributed once each year.
The Ila Warner Scholarship Fund was established by Ila Warner during her term as State Regent of the Nevada State Society - 1964-1966. The fund has increased through donations from the Nevada State Society members, fund-raising events, and a bequest from the estate of Ila Warner. The annual scholarship awards are funded from earned interest on the principal within the Fund.
The Ila Warner Scholarship is available to Nevada students who are either currently, or will be, enrolled on a full-time basis at the University of Nevada, Reno; the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Nevada State College, Henderson; or an accredited Nevada community college. Scholarships may be renewed for a maximum period of three years, so long as the student maintains eligibility (full-time status and a minimum 2.5 GPA).
