Participating in a Global Experience can help students refine their academic and career goals, while building confidence and independence. It also gives students time to share their experiences and insights with their classmates in their remaining undergraduate years. But many students wonder how to plan ahead to fund their experience.
The Global Experiences Scholarship is open to all students at Nebraska, regardless of when they plan to participate in a Global Experience. It is what we call a "planning scholarship," which allows students to plan their experience after they've been awarded the scholarship. Awardees must use the scholarship within three academic years of it being awarded.
Up to 100 awards are available each year. Priority is given to students with demonstrated financial need and students who are members of certain learning communities and scholar groups. 20% of the scholarships available are reserved for students who demonstrate merit. Award amount is $3,000.
