The Nebraska Bankers Association has allocated $201,508 to the University of Nebraska for the 2012-2013 school year. The NBA's total scholarship commitment for the year is $144,500. Since 1995, the NBA has awarded 831 scholarships to students at the University of Nebraska campuses in Kearney, Lincoln, and Omaha.
The donations for these scholarships along with funding for various University of Nebraska internship programs, professorships, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) equipment purchases are made possible each year through the NBA's University Foundation Allocation Committee.
Nebraska bankers have been helping Nebraska students continue their education since the early 1970s. Since 2006, the NBA's University Foundation Allocation Committee has offered scholarships specifically for students who are seeking employment in banking and finance. The result has been better-educated, better-prepared young people who are ready to begin their careers within the Nebraska financial services industry.
