Scott Scholars

This Hastings College Scott Scholars Program for high achieving high school students is funded by the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation of Omaha allows seven incoming students each year to receive a renewable scholarship that covers 100 percent of tuition and fees plus room and board — plus a $2,000 travel stipend to help cover costs to attend a conference, fund a research project or support an internship. 

In addition to Scott Scholars, other scholarships will be awarded to select participants.

The 2021 Bronco Scholars Day will happen online via Zoom — and includes a special opportunity for participating students interact with current Scott Scholars.
