Leaving a Legacy of Learning Opportunities

For more than 60 years, Warren & Velda Wilson worked the soil in south central Nebraska. The land was good to them and they enjoyed a productive, prosperous lifetime together.

They had no children of their own, but the Wilson's had a keen interest in the boys and girls growing up in the rural areas and communities around their home in Clay County. They also understood that the education of these young people was the key to a brighter future for each of them as individuals and for the area in which they would build their lives.

Warren & Velda Wilson

Prior to their deaths, (Warren in 1997 and Velda in 2002) the Wilson's decided to share the successes they had enjoyed in their lifetimes with those who would follow them.

The Warren & Velda Wilson Foundation was established in 1990. Its sole purpose is to provide scholarships for young men and women from central and south central Nebraska to attend college in Nebraska.

Through their Foundation, Warren and Velda Wilson have left behind a legacy of educational opportunities that will live on for generations to come

"Providing Students with Educational Opportunities"

The Warren & Velda Wilson Foundation

Scholarship

The Warren and Velda Wilson Foundation was founded to provide scholarships for students in central and south central Nebraska.

To be eligible for one of the scholarships, a student must reside and be a graduating senior from a high school in one of the following Nebraska counties: Adams, Clay, Fillmore, Hall, Hamilton, Nuckolls, Thayer, Webster & York.

The scholarships must be used to attend an accredited institution of post-secondary education in the State of Nebraska. Any four-year college or university, public or private, or any community college or trade school is acceptable. Scholarship is disbursed in two payments to the college for first year of higher education. Scholarship is not renewable.

Several factors will be considered in awarding the scholarships. In a 1992 letter, Mr. & Mrs. Wilson were emphatic in their ideas of how scholarship recipients should be chosen. They saiD,

"It is our desire that these scholarships not be limited to graduating seniors with only the highest level of academic achievement. Other factors are also important to us, including good citizenship, involvement in school and community activities, and potential for future academic success. Students with lower levels of academic achievement in high school should not be excluded from consideration if they are able to demonstrate strength in one or more of these other areas."

How to Apply

To apply for a Wilson Scholarship, a student must return a completed application form, including two recommendation forms, to their high school counselor. The counselor must submit the applications to the Wilson Foundation office.

A selection panel will review the applications and scholarship recipients will be notified by April 1 of that year.

Wilson Foundation scholarships will be awarded annually with the number and dollar amount of scholarships available to be announced each school term.

Proof of full-time enrollment will need to be sent to the scholarship coordinator prior to the first half of funds being disbursed to the college. Prior to second half being disbursed, recipient must provide scholarship coordinator proof of successful completion of first semester/quarter and proof of full-time enrollment for second semester.

Scholarships are not renewable.
