Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

  • Be full-time Prairie Club employees for a minimum of two (2) months during the prior year’s operating season.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates from a Nebraska or South Dakota high school, having a minimum grade point average of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $5,000.00. Up to 1 award will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent) in a full-time course of study, continued employment, and continuation of the program by The Prairie Club Foundation.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of The Prairie Club Foundation Scholarship Program play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

All applicants will be notified in late May.
