***BackPack Program provides food-filled backpacks each Friday throughout the school year. If you received these bags in elementary or middle school, you are encouraged to apply for this scholarship. BackPack Program primarily serves students who are on or qualify for Free/Reduced lunch. If you did not receive a food filled back during elementary or middle school, you are not eligible to apply.
The scholarship winner will be chosen by a committee comprised of Food Bank of Lincoln supporters and staff members. The winner will be selected based on how well the applicant conveys the impact the BackPack Program had on his or her family and how the scholarship will help the student.
