The UNK FBLA scholarship provides financial assistance to two incoming freshmen students enrolled in the College of Business & Technology at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Requirements for the scholarship include a student’s active membership in their high school FBLA chapter and are committed to pursuing a business career.

You must be admitted to UNK by March 19, 2019 to apply for this scholarship. You must have designated on your admissions application one of the required majors.
