Winter break: a good time for college prep!

Take advantage of free time over the holidays to do some prep work for college. Here are a few things you can do!


Seniors, complete your FAFSA

If you haven’t already, complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Need help? Use our free FAFSA Tools or call us to make an appointment for free help: Omaha - 888.357.6300; Lincoln - 800.303.3745; Kearney - 800.666.3721; or Scottsbluff - 800.303.3745, ext. 6654.


Search for Scholarships

Use our free ScholarshipQuest tool on Education Quest’s website to find Nebraska-based awards. You’ll also find links to national scholarship sites.


Update your Activities Resume

Our free Activities Resume on Education Quest’s website is an easy way to track your extracurricular activities, accomplishments, volunteer work, and part-time jobs. The information is then readily available when you apply for scholarships and employment.



In addition to giving back to your community, your volunteer work can lead to scholarship opportunities. Make sure you track your involvement on your Activities Resume.
