Kids’ Chance of Nebraska Calls for Eligible Scholarship Applicants

Kids’ Chance of Nebraska (KCNE; is calling for all who qualify for one of their scholarships to apply today. KCNE provides scholarships to children whose parents have suffered a workplace injury or death. KCNE is living by their name—they’re giving kids a chance. Scholarship applications can be accessed online and are due April 15.

Kids’ Chance exists because workers’ compensation pays the medical expenses and lost wages when a worker is injured on the, job but they don’t take into account the costs of post-secondary education for children of the injured worker. Often families who have suffered such a tragedy are forced to care for the injured individual and do not have the funding to send their children to college.

Kids’ Chance of Nebraska is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to provide financial support to further the education of the children of Nebraska workers who have been severely injured, totally disabled, or killed as a result of employment-related injuries or occupational diseases. It is the goal of Kids’ Chance of Nebraska to make a difference in the lives of these children by providing scholarships to help eligible students achieve both their educational goals and their families’ dreams. Email with any questions or go online to to apply for eligible students, no matter the age of the children.
