Authorized by the Nebraska Legislature in 2007, the Access College Early (ACE) Scholarship Program Act (LB 192) pays tuition and mandatory fees for qualified, low-income high school students to enroll in college courses from Nebraska's colleges or universities, either through dual-enrollment or early enrollment agreements with these institutions. There are two basic criteria for high school students to qualify for the ACE Scholarship. Students must either be eligible to receive assistance under a variety of federal government programs or the student and his or her family must have experienced a recent hardship. For questions regarding the ACE Scholarship program, contact Ritchie Morrow, Financial Aid Coordinator with the CCPE, via email at Ritchie.Morrow@nebraska.gov or at 402-471-0032.
