Jessica Bedient Mission Trip Scholarship

Jessica Bedient was passionate about experiencing different cultures and about serving people. To honor her life, which tragically ended in 2010, a foreign mission trip scholarship was established in her memory at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.  Jessica, a 26 year-old newlywed, died on October 13, 2010, four days after she and her husband, Tony Bedient, were in a traffic accident in Omaha.  Tony and Jessica were married just weeks before.

To honor his late wife and allow others to benefit from enriching experiences abroad, Tony Bedient established the foreign travel scholarship in 2012. The permanently endowed fund at the University of Nebraska Foundation provides annual scholarships for students wishing to travel abroad on pilgrimage or to participate in foreign-service missions. 

The application process is currently opened for the 2017-2018 school year.
