Scholarship Opportunity

Common Ground Nebraska (CGN) is honored to invest in the future of Nebraska’s youth by announcing two scholarship opportunities promoting safe excavation practices.  Educating current and future excavators to call 811 before every digging project will protect all critical underground utilities such as water lines, pipelines, electric and phone cables.

The Common Ground Nebraska (CGN) Scholarship Fund was established in 2013.  The mission of the CGN scholarships is to provide financial assistance to individuals enrolled for undergraduate study in community colleges, colleges, trade schools and universities toward a degree in the Construction and Agricultural Industries.
