Scholarship Fund

Sponsored by the Bay Area Huskers

Bay Area Huskers, covering the California coast from King City to Crescent City, has established the “The Dr. Buck McCoy Memorial Scholarship Fund” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) to benefit graduates of California high schools who are attending UNL. This scholarship was previously the California Bay Area Hobart Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The scholarship is now named for the late Dr. Buck McCoy, Class of 1955.  Dr. Robert E. “Buck” McCoy and his wife, Norma were responsible for starting the annual Nebraska steak picnic. This picnic is what the Bay Area Huskers look forward to attending each July.  Dr. McCoy, was chapter President from 1984 through 1987.

Scholarships will be awarded annually to qualified incoming freshmen or returning/transferring upperclassmen by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at UNL. Scholarship criteria are highlighted here.
