Robert W. Brightfelt Triangle Fraternity Scholarships
Triangle is again sponsoring the Robert W. Brightfelt Triangle Fraternity Scholarships. These scholarships consist of one $2000 scholarship, three at $500 and several at lesser amounts. These will be awarded mid-June 2018 to incoming freshmen in majors of engineering, architecture, and science following our membership specialization. We are looking for students with demonstrated academic excellence, character, community involvement and organizational leadership. All applicants will be contacted to arrange for preferably an in-person interview starting in March 2018. Alternatively we can conduct a telephone interview. The deadline for applying is June 10. Joining Triangle is not a prerequisite to receiving a scholarship. These scholarships are through the auspices of University of Nebraska Foundation and will appear as a credit on a student’s account. One of the many factors in evaluating applications is promptness of the application, so do not procrastinate, the earlier the better.

Nebraska American Legion Junior Law Cadet Program
Application deadline March 1, 2018

The American Legion Department of Nebraska Junior Law Cadet Program is held annually during the summer before the senior year of high school, typically during the middle of June, at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy in Grand Island. Completed applications and an endorsement from your school principal or superintendent must be submitted to your local American Legion Post Commander before March 1st. If you are interested in attending, the best local points-of-contact are your local Legion Post; and your high school principal or guidance counselor.

Every year, high school juniors from each of The American Legion’s 14 Districts in Nebraska are chosen to participate in the Junior Law Cadet Program. The purpose of the program is to allow male and female students the opportunity to explore and experience the various aspects of law enforcement training. Students participate in daily calisthenics and receive training in firearms, self-defense, fingerprinting, K-9 handling, accident and criminal investigation, lie detector testing, and state patrol car driving. Each year there is a separate male and female program, and students stay at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy in Grand Island.

ACT PREP

On Tuesday, March 27, 2018, Educational talent Search (ETS) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be in partnership with Lincoln Northeast High School (LNE) to provide a professional test prep presentation right before the April 3rd ACT exam. The presenter, Mr. Charles Ladd, uses students’ present skill levels to help them more effectively perform on standardized tests, giving every student the best chance to achieve at his or her highest potential. This presentation will focus on pre-test readiness, time management skills, and combating test anxiety. Those who have attended this workshop in the past have improved their scores anywhere between 3-8 points! This could happen for you too, giving you a better chance of getting into the college of your choice, meeting college-readiness cut scores and athletic eligibility requirements, and obtaining academic scholarships!

Presenter fees and needed student materials are all provided by ETS and LNE. The day’s events are worth over $150/student, but can be yours FREE! If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident with at least a 2.5 grade point average (or teacher/counselor recommendation), complete the ETS application and return it to the Counseling Center as soon as possible. ETS is a grant-funded TRIO program through the Department of Education, so specific questions regarding citizenship, income, and level of education must be asked. Please note: ETS needs this information, not Lincoln Public Schools. Without this information, students will not be permitted to join the program or attend this very important and effective workshop. A complete application is essentially your ticket into this FREE event, but all personal information will be kept in the strictest of confidence. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact ETS mainline at (402) 472-8989; ETS Assistant Director Vaughn Robertson at (402) 472-8994, (402) 417-5079, or vrobertson1@unl.edu; or LNE’s ETS Specialist, Ms. Natalie Frederick, at (402) 472-8985, (402) 450-6481, or nfrederick2@unl.edu.
