Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships

We offer scholarships twice per academic year to students who have completed at least one full semester at UNL. The Department of Modern Languages & Literatures has a range of scholarships given out at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee. These scholarships can range from $100 - $2,000 depending on the number of applicants and available funds. The largest awards are reserved for students who choose to major in a language, with minors receiving next highest awards.

Scholarships may be applied to through the Education Abroad application process (visit their website here) and the basic scholarship application through MyRed.
