Support Students through the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid
Tuition and living costs at Nebraska have steadily increased over the years much like the rest of the nation while income inequality has risen, making college affordability more challenging for all students, but especially those from low- and middle-income families. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid serves students by offering and administering merit-based campus-wide institutional scholarships, need-based scholarships and grants, and all federal and state financial aid awards. Financial aid packages at Nebraska are some of the most competitive in the nation to attract the top students from Nebraska and across the country and provide an affordable and accessible education for those who qualify. Much of this is due to the generous support from donors that is provided directly to students.
