The Collegiate 100 program (C100) at Nevada State College, the second only program of its kind west of the Mississippi, was awarded $22,000 by the Las Vegas Chapter of 100 Black Men, a nonprofit organization that strives to improve the quality of life and enhance educational opportunities for African Americans.

C100, which is only offered at Nevada State College and the University of California, Berkeley in the western part of the nation, is a leadership and service program with awards to develop leaders.

The program also provides members opportunities for internships with major sponsor companies, participation in the national network of C100 peers and leaders along with workshops and career seminars designed to elevate C100 success.

Nevada State College, which noted a 90 percent increase in African American freshman enrollment in the Fall 2020 semester, will award the funds to recipients selected by 100 Black Men and will further provide any matching amounts based on any standard matching programs administered by the College.

As one of Nevada’s most diverse college campuses, Nevada State offers students from all backgrounds, including non-traditional and high-achieving students, an opportunity to earn a degree through quality academic programs that ready them for in-demand careers.
