Selection Process Timeline


Each summer a new group of up to thirty individuals are selected to begin participation in the fall.

June 15:                     The application deadline is always June 15th of the current year.


July:                           All candidates who complete the application packet are interviewed by a five-member panel during the month of July. By design, we interview candidates who reside throughout the entire state of Nebraska. Candidates are recommended to the Board.
