BBB Now Accepting Applications for Student of Integrity Award Scholarship Program

The Education Foundation of the Better Business Bureau (BBB, serving Nebraska, South Dakota, The Kansas Plains, and Southwest Iowa encourages integrity and ethical behavior in the community, and BBB’s 2022 Student of Integrity Award Scholarships recognize high school seniors who have displayed these values inside and outside of the classroom.

A major part of the application requires students to write an essay describing a situation they were personally involved in that tested their ethical philosophy and integrity. The essay challenges students to dive into inner conflict while describing tactics they used to resolve their unique encounters with difficult situations.

High school seniors, including home-schooled students, who reside in BBB’s service area are eligible to apply. Twelve winners will each be awarded $2,000 scholarships to be used for college tuition and expenses:

  • Three from Metro Omaha/Southwest Iowa (includes Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie and Shelby counties)
  • Three from Metro Lincoln/Greater Nebraska (all of Nebraska except Metro Omaha)
  • Three from South Dakota
  • Three from The Kansas Plains (all counties in Kansas except Franklin, Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Miami and Wyandotte)
