Muehlberger (Clara) Scholarship

For Area Residents Pursuing Undergraduate Study in Education or Health Care

 

The Muehlberger Scholarship was established in 2004 by the Waldemar Muehlberger Estate to assist residents from eleven (11) Nebraska Panhandle counties (Banner, Box Butte, Cheyenne, Dawes, Deuel, Garden, Kimball, Morrill, Scotts Bluff, Sheridan and Sioux) and Goshen County in Wyoming who are pursuing a major in education or a health care-related field at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or institution. The scholarship is available to high school graduates, non-traditional students, and college upper classmen. Winners and alternates will be selected. Muehlberger Scholarships are awarded annually and provide up to $4,000 for undergraduate study. The $1,000 per year ($500 paid per semester) scholarships are renewable for up to four years.

 

To qualify for the Muehlberger Scholarship, students must:

  • Have a minimum ACT score of 21

  • Major in education or a health-care-related field of study at an accredited college or university

  • Be enrolled as full-time students as defined by the institution

  • Must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA

 

Deadline for application and supporting documents is February 15th.

High school applicants are required to attach a copy of their official ACT/SAT and high school transcript (final grades for high school senior year are not required). College and non-traditional applicants are required to attach a copy of their most recent transcript of grades.

 

Recipients are responsible for forwarding college transcripts to OTCF within three (3) weeks of the end of each grading period and must notify OTCF of any address changes. Failure to send transcripts jeopardizes scholarship renewal.

 

Scholarships are paid directly to the school and credited to your student account.

 

If scholarship recipients or their parent(s) move to new address, notification [including new address(es) and phone number(s)] must be given to the Oregon Trail Community Foundation. If the recipients transfers to a different college, notice must be given to OTCF. The scholarship will be rescinded and awarded to the alternate if the recipient does not enroll as a fulltime student for the first semester for which the scholarship is awarded.
