Since 1987, the NTA and its member companies have helped dreams come true for outstanding students in Nevada. In high school, these students began their journey of academic excellence, positive leadership and dedication to service. They are continuing throughout their careers to serve others and realize their full potential to change the world and create an enduring legacy. We at the NTA are proud to be a small part of their success.

To help students complete their education, the NTA offers two scholarships, through which students can help to fund their studies. Please click on a button below to apply online for a scholarship.

     The John and Mary Louise Christian was established in 1987. The Scholarship honors John and Mary Louise Christian who owned the Lincoln County Telephone System until their tragic death in an automobile accident near Panaca, NV in November 1986. John and Mary Louise were active in operating their company as well as being involved in continuing efforts for the economic development of Lincoln County and their hometown of Pioche.

     Established in 2014, the Nevada Telecommunications Association Member Companies Customer Scholarship is designed for dependent children of customers of the Association’s member local exchange telephone companies. Seniors graduating from a Nevada State high school and enrolling in an accredited college, vocational school or university are eligible for the Scholarship.

     All scholarship recipients are selected by a committee of representatives from member companies based upon the committee’s review of four (4) criteria:

1. Academic achievement
2. Curricular and extracurricular activities
