2014 Mosaic scholarship competition

Posted on January 18, 2013 at 2:26 pm

Lincoln is home to growing communities of refugees.

These new Americans, like generations of immigrants before them, value the opportunities provided by continued education.

Recognizing this, the Nebraska Mosaic project of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers the Nebraska Mosaic Scholarship for freshmen.

The Nebraska Mosaic Scholarship, with generous funding from the Lincoln Community Foundation and the Knight Community Information Challenge, will provide a student graduating from a Lincoln high school in spring 2014 with $1,500 toward a first year at UNL. A student choosing to enroll in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications will receive an additional $500.

Applicants for the Nebraska Mosaic Scholarship must produce an essay on the subject “My Refugee Experience.” This may take the form of a written essay, a photographic slide show or a video production. All essays become the property of the Nebraska Mosaic project, and the College of Journalism and Mass Communications reserves the right to publish, on the Nebraska Mosaic website (nemosaic.org), any of the essays it chooses.

Deadline for applying for the Nebraska Mosaic Scholarship is April 1, 2014. A panel of judges will determine the winner, who will be announced on April 4, 2014. An application form must accompany the essay, which can be mailed to Timothy G. Anderson, 129 Andersen Hall, P.O. Box 880474, Lincoln, NE 68588-0474, or emailed to tanderson5@unl.edu.

Applicants must offer evidence, either by including a copy of an I-94 or other document, that they are in the United States on a visa 92 or 93, or that their parents are in the United States on a visa 92 or 93. Applicants also must show that they have been accepted for enrollment at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
