LINCOLN – Monday, August 1 is the final day for non-traditional students to apply for the Nebraska Rural Radio Foundation Scholarship.

From EMT training to a nursing degree and other college credits, non-traditional students are getting the much-needed support to obtain their educational goals with this scholarship.
Megahn Schafer, executive director at the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation said, “vibrant rural communities are critical to the success of agriculture and all of Nebraska. This scholarship supports individuals who are committed to making a difference in rural Nebraska.”
The Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation is accepting applications for the 2023 scholarships and will award up to $2,500 to non-traditional students, age 25 or older, living in Nebraska’s rural communities. Applicants must be pursuing an education in Nebraska including, but not limited to, community college, technical school or training programs.
Past winners have demonstrated their commitment to the future of agriculture and rural towns. Past recipients serve their communities as educators, EMTs, nurses, and more, while contributing to their farm and ranch operations.
Schafer added, “no matter the field of study, we are looking for applicants who will contribute to a higher quality of life in their communities, and we know there are so many qualified candidates out there. What is great about this scholarship is that it is so flexible and can support many kinds of education and training. We urge people to spread the word about this scholarship and encourage people to apply.”
