SENATOR EDWARD R DANNER MINORITY STUDENTS' SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship honors the late Nebraska State Senator Edward R. Danner who served in the Nebraska Unicameral during the U.S. Civil Rights era of the 1960's. Senator Danner introduced numerous bills that made discrimination on the basis of skin color illegal. In 1965, Danner's bill creating Nebraska's Fair Employment Act was passed. He also co-sponsored the fair housing practices bill which passed in 1969. It established the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission to investigate civil rights violations.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

The scholarship seeks to identify minority high school seniors who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership potential and financial need. Preference is given to applicants who reside in Nebraska Legislative District 11.

Scholarships will be awarded annually to qualified students ranging from $500 to $2,500, per academic year. The scholarships are renewable for four years provided the student remains a full-time student in good academic standing. Recipients who attend an accredited four-year college or university in the Nebraska area are given preference.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 1, 2016

The Danner Scholarship is managed by the Missouri River District of the United Methodist Church. Applications will be screened during the three week period following the application deadline by the selection committee.
