2. Fill out the application form: https://goo.gl/forms/MUmxPp4X4AndZFp22
Once all of this information has been received and your eligibility to become an official member has been verified, we will send you a conformational email, as well as an invite to join our RSO through the UNLV Involvement Center.
In order to receive a graduation cord to present and represent UNLV Scientista at graduation, members must attain a good standing membership with the organization for the two years, prior to their graduation date. A good standing membership would include as follows:
Members will receive their graduation cord if they have completed at least 20 approved volunteer hours within the two years prior to their graduation date. This means that you have completed at least 5 hours each semester for 4 semesters straight, making it two years. Hours do not roll over from years before or from semesters before, so you must complete at least 5 hours each of those 4 semesters to meet 20 hours.
Members will receive their graduation cord if they have also attended at least 6 general meetings within the two years prior to their graduation date. Meetings do not roll over as well.
Finally, a member will receive their graduation cord if they have paid their membership dues prior to their graduation date.
Donors include extra gracious people who wish to give donations larger than $30.
This donation amount goes directly into the UNLV Scientista scholarship fund, details to be announced soon.
This donation amount funds one Scientista to take their professional school entrance exam (i.e. MCAT or GRE)
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and help seal the leaky pipeline.
