Lincoln company announces UNL scholarships

A Lincoln publishing company is creating a scholarship program with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to encourage more young people to learn in Nebraska and stay here when they graduate.

Sandhills Publishing has announced a commitment to the University of Nebraska Foundation to create the Sandhills Publishing Student Program. The program benefits the UNL Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

Sandhills will eventually provide scholarship awards of $8,000 each to eight students a year. Beginning this fall semester, scholarships will be awarded to two incoming freshmen students every year.

Based on continued academic achievement, the students may be eligible to receive the scholarships for an additional three years.

Founded in 1978, Sandhills Publishing is located in Lincoln, and is an information processing company.
