Locally Administered Scholarships

The Chapter funds locally administered scholarships for San Diego County students attending the University of Nebraska. This is separate and in addition to the program discussed in the following paragraph. Both incoming freshman and upper classmen are eligible. These awards are typically $500 but may be more depending on the funds available to the Chapter. For more information and to apply go to this site.

The Chapter is also proud to collaborate with the University of Nebraska Foundation in underwriting a scholarship in the amount of $1000 to be awarded annually to an applicant for the fall freshman class residing in San Diego County. All San Diego County applicants for the fall class are automatically considered for that award during the University’s admission process and a separate application is not needed.
