The Nebraska Cooperative Council Education Foundation (NCCEF) will provide 11 scholarships
totaling $31,000 for the 2021/22 academic year to students at the University of Nebraska-
Lincoln (UNL) College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR), the Nebraska
College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA) at Curtis, and the University of Nebraska-Kearney
(UNK).

The NCCEF scholarship program includes:
  • Seven $3,000 scholarships at UNL in honor of Michael S. Turner–one to an incoming student and the balance to upperclassmen–majoring in Agribusiness or Agricultural Economics
  • One $3,000 scholarship at UNL in honor of Robert C. Andersen to an upperclassman majoring in Agribusiness or Agricultural Economics
  • Two $2,000 scholarships at NCTA in honor of Michael S. Turner to students majoring in Agribusiness or Ag Production Systems

The scholarship program was initiated with the 1993/94 academic year as an important addition
to the Council's youth education efforts. Since that time, 209 scholarships totaling $251,600
have been provided to students.

Scholarship committees at UNL, NCTA, and UNK make the selection of recipients based on
criteria established for each scholarship. The Foundation only verifies local cooperative
affiliation and Council membership requirements.

Individuals will need to complete an online application form and submit it electronically to UNL,
NCTA, or UNK by April 15, 2021. The link for students to complete/submit an application can
be found in our website at http://www.nebr.coop/foundation/scholarships.
