They are available to students that have a parent or guardian that were service men or women that passed away during the September 11, 2001 Twin Tower bombing.
Obviously, everybody’s situation is very different, so the amount that any one person receives can differ widely from the next person’s award.
In some special cases, you do not even have to apply for these grants.
Qualified students must be a Nebraska state resident and attending a four year college or university in the state of Nebraska.
The aim of this state-funded program is to up the number of underrepresented students who get into, thrive in, and graduate from college institutions in Nebraska.
The state’s incentives to accomplish this goal are monetary funds under the College Access Challenge Grant towards several state-run scholarship programs, college initiatives, and education development centers.
For example, the Access College Early Scholarship Program allows high-school students to enroll in college early, thus giving them a head start on an exemplary secondary education and a chance to get into a career as soon as possible.
It is available to students that have excellent grades and have taken challenging coursework throughout high school.
This grant can be applied for each year as long as you continue to take challenging courses and do not let your grades slip or lose their edge.
