Panhandle Research and Extension Scholarship Fund

Panhandle Research and Extension Scholarship Fund

You can help youth in your community through a gift to the Panhandle Research and Extension Center (PHREC) Student Scholarship Fund. The fund was created after Gering High School students won state and national awards sponsored by Samsung Corporation for showing how drones could be used to incrementally spot-spray agricultural products. The students used advanced technology to identify the specific field locations needing those agricultural sprays. The Panhandle Research and Extension Center was proud to partner with these inspiring students and received a $20,000 award from Samsung as the students’ sponsor. This gift was matched with another $20,000 from the University of Nebraska president. PHREC is using this money to create a scholarship fund for the Panhandle’s deserving high school students. We need your support to grow the fund and make meaningful scholarship awards to area students.
