Scholarships and Awards

A message from Dr. Tim Jares, Dean of the College of Business and Technology

As we look to the future, amid the COVID-19 driven uncertainty that has seemingly enveloped our entire world, the 2020-2021 academic year sits on our horizon, perhaps as a proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. I remain very optimistic thanks to the hard work of the students, faculty, and staff, but also due to the generosity and vision of our donors. Our students, particularly those that have earned CBT scholarships, are driven and have worked tirelessly amid chaotic and unprecedented challenges. I commend them for the fastidious care they have shown in pursuit of their degrees and the impactful careers that surely will follow. It is an investment in this future that has fueled our supporters to provide these generous scholarships. I could not be more proud to represent UNK’s College of Business and Technology.


For the 2020-2021 academic year, the College of Business and Technology is proud to report that we have awarded more than 300 scholarships to over 200 students, totaling almost $400,000 to well-deserving students.  Perhaps, now more than ever, these scholarships will have a huge impact on the lives of these students.  We could not be more thankful to our donors, their passion is what makes this all possible.


Please join me in congratulating our students in these achievements and thanking our donors for continuing to support our College as we build the leaders of tomorrow.
