NCC Foundation Scholarship Program

The Nebraska Co-op Council is now accepting applications for its scholarship program. Full scholarship details below:

The Scholarship Program began with the 1993/94 academic year.  Since that time 220 scholarships totaling $282,600 have been awarded to students.  Click here for an historical list of our scholarship winners.  The funding for scholarships comes from investment income/interest from the Foundation’s scholarship endowment account.

Colleges included in the Scholarship Program are:

  • UNL College of Ag Sciences & Natural Resources – students majoring in agribusiness or agricultural economics
  • Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA) at Curtis – students majoring in agribusiness or ag production systems

Student eligibility is restricted to sons/daughters of a parent/legal guardian who has been an active member, director, or employee for at least the prior three years of a cooperative which has been a member in good standing of the Council for at least five years. Scholarship committees at UNL, NCTA, and UNK make the selection of recipients based on criteria established for each scholarship. The Foundation only verifies local cooperative affiliation and Council membership requirements.
