Scholarship Program

The San Diego Chapter is 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 the award during the University’s admission process and a special application is not needed.

Tax-deductible donations by local Huskers to help fund this important initiative are greatly appreciated and can be made by mailing a check payable to the University of Nebraska Foundation Fund #01124500 to:

University of Nebraska Foundation
1010 Lincoln Mall
Lincoln, Nebraska 68508

Donations made through the foundation have the additional advantage of possibly generating matching donations from employers.

Donations to the fund may also be made online here.

In addition 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 above. 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.
