The Gabby Matthes Memorial Scholarship is for graduating seniors of Freeman High School or from high schools in Gage, Lancaster, Jefferson, Saline, Johnson or Pawnee Counties in Nebraska (Lincoln Public Schools are excluded). The applicant must demonstrate involvement in school or community activities other than, or in addition to, athletics. Activities may include art, music, drama or clubs. Financial need and academic achievement will be used as tie-breaker criteria only.
The Lincoln Community Foundation is a catalyzing force that seeks to create a better future for our community. Improving our city goes beyond making grants that advance charitable activities and helping donors make charitable gifts to support local nonprofit organizations. Generous donors to Lincoln Community Foundation have established more than 90 scholarship funds that benefit students in Nebraska. Applications run from the middle of December until the due date.
