Priorities

Current Priority areas

Across the University of Nebraska system, there are thousands of areas a donor could choose to support. However, the areas listed below are considered to be the greatest needs.

Presidential Student Scholarship Fund

Lack of financial resources is commonly the single greatest barrier to higher education, and students who are the first in their family to attend college often need additional help. Gifts to the Presidential Student Scholarship Fund will support students who are willing to work hard to create a better future for themselves, but just need some help to get started.

University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund

The University of Nebraska Emergency Assistance Fund enables the university to help currently enrolled students and current university employees who face financial hardship resulting from emergency or crisis situations such as natural disasters, home displacement and food insecurity.
