Nebraska bankers understand the importance of a well-educated, well-trained workforce in our state. For that reason, the NBA supports a number of scholarships available to students attending college in Nebraska. Information on those scholarships can be found below.





Nebraska Bankers Educational Foundation
William B. Brandt Memorial Scholarships

Up to nine $2,000 annual scholarships are now available to assist Nebraska business students enrolled at state or privately funded Nebraska educational institutions.

William B. “Bill” Brandt served as a long-time general counsel and lobbyist for the Nebraska Bankers Association. Bill’s amazing 25-year tenure with the Nebraska Bankers Association began in 1965, following two terms of service in the state Legislature. Through the establishment of the William B. Brandt Memorial Scholarship Fund, Bill’s service to the banking industry, his community, and the state of Nebraska will not be forgotten.
