Hello! The Nevada Millennium Scholarship is definitely a great opportunity to help fund your college education. Here are the general requirements and eligibility criteria for the scholarship:

1. To be eligible, you must be a Nevada high school graduate from a public high school, private high school, or approved homeschool program.

2. You must complete a rigorous set of core curriculum courses, which include four years of English, four years of math, three years of social science, three years of natural science (two of which must be lab-based), one year of foreign language or career and technical education, and one year of additional coursework from core subjects.

3. You need to maintain at least a 3.25 cumulative high school GPA (weighted or unweighted) based on the core curriculum courses listed above.

4. You should take the ACT or SAT, and score at least 21 on the ACT or 1070 on the SAT.

5. Lastly, you must be a U.S. citizen or have lawful immigration status.

To increase your chances of getting the Millennium Scholarship, focus on maintaining a strong GPA and consider taking more challenging courses, such as honors or Advanced Placement (AP) classes, to show dedication and commitment to your studies. Also, participate in extracurricular activities, as these can demonstrate your interests and character, which might play a role if the program ever considers other factors besides academic performance.

In terms of application, there isn't a separate application process for the Nevada Millennium Scholarship. Your high school will transmit the data of eligible students to the Nevada State Treasurer's Office. However, you should still double-check the submission process with your school counselor to ensure everything is in order.

Once you're awarded the scholarship, remember to maintain the required college GPA and complete the necessary number of credits to continue receiving the scholarship in your college years. Good luck!
