Susan Thompson 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 5pm CT/4pm MT. The maximum award at UNO for a full time (12+ credits) student is $4,700 per semester for up to 5 years.
