Ricketts Proposes Scholarship for High-Need Professions

Connecting Nebraskans to specific career areas where the state needs more talent is a priority for Gov. Pete Ricketts. Earlier this week, he announced a state-funded scholarship program designed to make that happen.
If the state Legislature funds the effort, the Nebraska Talent Scholarships program would offer $4,000 in annual scholarships to college students enrolled in math, engineering, health care, and computer information systems at the University of Nebraska, state colleges, and community colleges.
