The Nebraska Academy of Sciences collegiate scholarship in memory of C. Bertrand and Marian Othmer Schultz will be offered to a Junior or Senior enrolled in an accredited college or university in the state of Nebraska. The applicant must have a declared major in a natural science discipline (chemistry, physics, biology, geology) and be anticipating a career in a science related industry, science teaching or scientific research.
Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee. Scholarship renewals will also be reviewed on a case by case basis. Scholarship recipients must show progress toward their career goals and the scholarship is not automatically renewed. Applications should include things such as total number of credits, current GPA, a complete list of all science courses completed, science faculty recommendation, and an essay describing your career plans after graduation.
