For a second straight year a $10,000 grant from the Learning by Giving Foundation is giving students at the University of Nebraska at Kearney an opportunity to make grants to local nonprofit organizations.
Students participating in the UNK Field Experience in Marketing course, mentored by Dr. Sri Seshadri, UNK professor in the Department of Marketing and Management Information Systems, have received the money from the foundation, which was originally established by Doris Buffet, sister of Warren Buffet as the Sunshine Lady Foundation.
This year's focus will be on programs that benefit children, below the high-school age level, within the Buffalo county area or up to $5,000 per program.
Applicants may apply until October 24, 5 p.m.
Notification of the applicants status will be made by November 19. For more information, go to
