LINCOLN — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has awarded scholarships to nonresident students who will enroll in the 2010-11 academic year, which begins Aug. 23. The scholarship winners are from 37 states.
The nonresident scholarship programs were created in 1995 to identify and reward the most talented students from states other than Nebraska who attend UNL. The scholarships are awarded based on transfer grade-point averages for transfer students, or on academic accomplishments in high school and admissions test scores for 2010 high school graduates.
With the arrival of August, families with school-aged children are paying school registration fees and starting to buy school supplies.
Examples of qualifying expenses include school registration fees, required school supplies, and fees for extra-curricular activities.
