The Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars program is a unique educational opportunity to develop future leaders for the beef industry. It combines learning opportunities provided by Nebraska beef industry leaders and University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty.
Progressive scholarships are available through the Animal Science Department, based on funding provided by the Nebraska Cattlemen. These awards are in the amount of $500 per year renewable for up to three years conditional on participation in the program ($1,500 total). These scholarships will be awarded to Animal Science students who plan on being a part of the Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars (NBIS) during their collegiate career. Students should have a strong interest in the beef industry.
The application is the same as for other Animal Science Freshman scholarships and is available on the
page. Applications are due February 15th each year.
