UNL Education Abroad Administered Scholarships

These scholarships are awarded by the Education Abroad Office and/or an external committee, and have various types of award criteria, including: language learning, previous travel, program sponsor, host country, and program type. While UNL education abroad scholarships are primarily merit-based ("essay-based"), financial need may also be considered. Students may start scholarship applications prior to acceptance into a program.  Complete the Basic Scholarship Application to apply for several awards at one time, including the Global Gateway, but don't forget to apply to the scholarship programs with their own applications! Please note that UNL scholarships cannot be used for programs administered by UNO, UNK, or UNMC.
