Nebraska Scholarships

The wide-open state of Nebraska gives you plenty of room to stretch your legs, but it also gives you plenty of options for higher education. In addition to the University of Nebraska and Nebraska State College systems, the Cornhusker State features several two-year schools and private Christian colleges.

Regardless of which option you choose, chances are you’ll need some financial aid. Luckily, Nebraska offers several scholarships funded by colleges, the government and private organizations.

Popular Nebraska Scholarships

Many Nebraska scholarships are designed for those associated with the military. For example, the American Legion Auxiliary’s Vocational/Technical Scholarship is reserved for students who are connected to a veteran.

Similarly, the Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs funds a tuition waiver for relatives of disabled and deceased veterans. If your parent or spouse was injured in the line of duty, you may be eligible for this waiver.

Institutional aid is a good source for Nebraska scholarships. The University of Nebraska – Lincoln sponsors many awards, including the $2,225 Regents Scholarship. A full list of these, along with other Nebraska scholarships, is available in our scholarship directory.
