Legends Scholarship

The Nebraska Legends Scholarship Program supports recruitment and retention of top students. The San Diego Chapter is proud to collaborate with the University of Nebraska Foundation in underwriting a Nebraska Legends Scholarship in the amount of $1000 to be awarded annually to an applicant for the fall freshman class residing in San Diego County. The Chancellor of the University has agreed to match our grant and thus increase the total award to $2000. All San Diego County applicants for admission to the fall class are automatically considered for the award and a special application is not needed. The recipients of these scholarships are referred to as Nebraska Legends Scholars. Once at UNL, they participate in a program designed to help them become engaged with the University, find academic success, make friends and become involved in campus life. Donations made through the foundation have the additional advantage of possibly generating matching donations from employers.

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:
