Each year during the Nebraska Youth Institute, students come together at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to present their research, connect with like-minded students from around the state, and meet with researchers, global leaders, and professors at their land grant university. Students who attend the Nebraska Youth Institute also earn a $500 scholarship from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources each year they participate. Continue reading
