I am very grateful to have received this scholarship and I will work hard to make good use of it. Receiving this scholarship helped me answer the question as to whether or not I would be able to attend college. Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend the University of Nebraska.

The Campaign for Nebraska. Unlimited Possibilities.

What does it mean and why are we doing it? 



The University of Nebraska Foundation is involved in a comprehensive fundraising campaign to fund university priorities such as student scholarships, faculty recruitment, research and program support. The campaign will conclude in 2014.

"This campaign is focused on opportunities for students, on expanding research in areas we are already renowned and on making a difference in Nebraska," said James B. Milliken, president of the University of Nebraska. "The campaign will continue to build on the university's tremendous momentum."

That momentum includes steady enrollment increases and improvements that are keeping more of the state's top scholars in Nebraska. As well as record numbers for external funding for research.
