Continuing Student Scholarships

Continuing Student Scholarships

The Continuing Student Scholarships are made possible by gifts to the University of Nebraska at Kearney from generous donors. The scholarships are permanently endowed and invested by the University of Nebraska Foundation. The income from the investment pays for the scholarships.

UNK offers over 400 separate scholarships which, combined, provide more than $1,000,000 in assistance to our students. Last year over 800 students received at least one Continuing Student scholarship.

Eligible students may apply for the Continuing Student Scholarships each year from February 1 through midnight on the last day of February by accessing the online application on MyBLUE. All applicants will be notified of their results during the month of June.
