Visit Grants

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is committed to increasing the college going rate of students that find college attainment a major obstacle.

Visiting campus is one way to increase a student’s probability of attending college. To this end, we are proud to announce a new College Visit Grant program to financially support schools and community organizations with their visit to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
