SusanThompson Buffett Scholarship

The Susan T. Buffett Foundation has offered scholarships to college students in Nebraska for over 50 years. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to first-time, entering freshmen who are residents of Nebraska, graduates of a Nebraska high school with plans to attend a Nebraska public institution, and who have demonstrated financial need. There are a limited number of scholarships, so the Foundation is unable to provide awards to all eligible candidates. The application opens on November 1st and the deadline is February 1st at 4pm/5pm CST/MST. The maximum award at UNO for a full time (12+ credits) student is $4,600 per semester for up to 5 years.
