LINCOLN, Neb. (KSNB) - EducationQuest Foundation awarded $1.57 million in scholarship funds to 30 nonprofit colleges and universities across Nebraska for the 2023-24 academic year.

The funds are designated for Nebraska undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. Each college selects students to receive scholarships based on several criteria.
