The Cornhusker State known as Nebraska is a state driven by agriculture. It is a leading producer of products such as corn, soybeans, pork and beef. But this doesn't stop it from also being a great place to pursue a college education.
There are approximately 45 colleges, universities and trade schools in Nebraska. The University of Nebraska has 4 satellite campuses in addition to its main campus. Other schools include Wayne State University, Creighton University and Bellevue University. There are also a series of regional community colleges offering affordable tuition for in-state residents.
Given the key role that agriculture plays in the state economy, this is a great place to study topics such as soil science, veterinary medicine and farming technology. However, the scholarship opportunities in Nebraska are not limited to these agrarian subjects. Public and private scholarships also exist for a host of academic and technical subjects, from information science to legal studies.
