During the 1970s, the Nebraska Bankers Association conducted a fund drive to establish the Nebraska Bankers fund within the University of Nebraska Foundation. That campaign raised approximately $1 million, forming the foundation's largest single-industry gift. "This fund is part of an ongoing effort by the Nebraska banking industry to retain and attract the best
and brightest students to our state and to the University of Nebraska campuses," said Kelly Holthus, president and CEO of Cornerstone Bank in York, Nebraska.
The Nebraska Bankers Association and the Department of Agricultural Economics have partnered to prepare students for careers in agricultural banking. This program combines classroom instruction with real-world learning at a Nebraska bank. In order to reach more students, Nebraska bankers would like to increase the amount of each scholarship to make them even more attractive to Nebraska students. To do so, however, they need to grow their fund. And they need your help. Thank you for your interest in assisting the Nebraska Bankers Association in this important effort that not only helps the students, but everyone in our state.
