About NebraskaLand University
NebraskaLand University is a six course financial literacy scholarship program designed to educate students on budgeting, savings, credit, loans, career and wealth development, identity theft protection and more. The curriculum uses a combination of established financial literacy materials and unique lesson plans created and instructed by Senior and Executive Officers at NebraskaLand National Bank.
The program is offered to high school seniors in the North Platte and surrounding areas at no charge. However, students must complete an application to the program and class size is limited. Each graduate of the program receives a $250.00 academic scholarship if all requirements are met. Each graduate also has the opportunity to earn greater scholarships through an essay contest that is judged by a bank committee. Students with the highest scores are the recipients of scholarships in the amounts of $1,000 for first place; $750 for second place; and $500 for third place.
NebraskaLand National Bank takes pride in the program and expects students to be interactive and engaged as well as demonstrate responsibility by arriving on time and completing the coursework.
