Scholarship Application

All students of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are eligible for the CPBS room and board scholarships. Entering freshmen are very much encouraged to apply, but you should contact the CPBS office prior to submitting your application.

To complete the application process, you must complete this webform (including the letter of interest), obtain a letter of recommendation, and send us your transcripts.

The webform has a letter of interest upload area (THIS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS YOUR LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION). In this portion please be ready to upload a document answering these two questions:
  1. Why do you want to take classes at Cedar Point? (e.g., what do you foresee gaining from this experience?)
  2. What will you be able to contribute to Cedar Point while you are taking classes this summer?

Please ask a member of the UNL faculty to write a short letter of recommendation in support of your application for the scholarship. Ask this person to send their letter to the Cedar Point office (c/o Jon Garbisch, 111 Manter Hall, City Campus, -0118) by the deadline of March 15th. Their letter needs to include comments on your work ethic and character.

After you hit the submit button at the bottom of the form, you will be redirected to a success page, and emailed within 1 or 2 business days. If this does not happen, your scholarship application has not been successfully submitted and processed. Try using a different browser, and if that does not work, please email us at once.
