SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 2016

“A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader;
a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.”

--Eleanor Roosevelt

In 2012, Cabela’s created its first Women in Leadership (WIL) Council.

“We are fortunate to have a deep pool of very talented women at Cabela’s,” said Cabela’s CEO Tommy Millner. “This program is our attempt to nurture this valuable resource by preparing these women to assume key leadership roles in our organization.”

The mission of the WIL is to support growth and development of female leaders by strengthening leadership skills, championing inclusion and diversity and promoting Innovation. To that end, the WIL Council identified three objectives:

Initiate and support innovative programs to enhance leadership

Create a supportive culture that connects aspiring women with female role models Encourage current female leaders to champion Cabela’s as a diverse employer

Out of this initiative came the first Cabela’s Women in Leadership Scholarship program. Its purpose is to identify young women who exhibit the potential to become tomorrow’s leaders in their chosen professions, local communities and broader interaction with the world.

1
In an effort to help young women realize those objectives, Cabela’s has worked with The Harry and Reba Huge Foundation to create a comprehensive program of both financial and professional support for these future leaders. To help cover college expenses, Cabela’s has committed $2,500 a year to each of four scholarship winners for an individual total award of $10,000 over four years. To enhance students’ professional development, they have created special opportunities for scholarship winners to interact with successful professionals at Cabela’s and the Huge Foundation. Through these organizations, scholarship winners will have access to personalized educational and career mentoring as well as help gaining internships and connecting to other professional networking opportunities.

Congratulations on your decision to explore this special opportunity. We look forward to receiving your application materials and learning more about you and your ambitions.

The application deadline is Jan. 4, 2016.

APPLICATION INFORMATION & DIRECTIONS

THE SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

The Cabela’s Women in Leadership Scholarship (the "Scholarship") will provide $2,500 annually toward the tuition andIor related educational expenses (such as room, board, books) of an undergraduate program at a regionally accredited four-year-degree-granting college or university or a two-year community or junior college. The option of attending a two-year community or junior college must be part of an educational plan to continue a student's education at a regionally accredited four-year college or university. The plan of first attending a two-year community or junior college must be discussed with the Scholarship Selection Committee (the "Scholarship Committee") during the interview and agreed to and approved by the Scholarship Committee. The scholarship is not limited to colleges or universities located in the state of Nebraska. The scholarship awards will be issued annually by The Harry and Reba Huge Foundation directly to the scholarship winners.

The scholarship is renewable three times for a total of $10,000 over four years of undergraduate study as long as the recipient maintains a GPA of 3.0 for the preceding scholastic year. If in the opinion of the Scholarship Committee, unusual and unexpected circumstances result in a scholarship recipient not reaching the 3.0 GPA, that requirement may be suspended following discussion with the Scholarship Committee and the scholarship recipient.

It is expected that the scholarship recipients will file a report with the Huge Foundation at the end of each academic year (but no later than July 1) summarizing the scholarship recipient’s college experience and to verify by submission of official transcripts that the recipient has met the criteria for continuation of the scholarship. At this point, the student must express her intent to continue her college education for another year. Unless otherwise approved by the Scholarship Committee, students who have received funding for another academic year but do not complete that year will be expected to return the scholarship money to The Huge Foundation.

SELLECTION OF WINNERS

The Scholarship Selection Committee will select winners based on a holistic evaluation of the complete application and the personal interviews with the finalists. The Committee will strongly consider academic achievements and credentials, such as the applicant’s high school class rank, transcripts, GPA, curriculum and ACT or SAT scores. The Committee will also consider evidence of leadership qualities, extracurricular activities, community service, work experience outside of school, honors and awards, and recognition by her peers. The Committee will also evaluate the applicant’s personal qualities and interests as demonstrated in the letters of recommendation and the personal essays.

All applicants will be notified of their status as either a finalist or no longer under consideration on or before March 7, 2016. Interviews with the finalists will take place in the latter part of March, and will be conducted in person. If the interviewee cannot travel to the interview, a phone interview may be an option, but these are discouraged.

4
The interviews, which are informal, will last approximately 45 minutes and are being conducted so the Scholarship Committee will have an opportunity to meet personally and get to know the applicant, and the

applicant will get to know the Scholarship Committee members. The applicants will also be able to ask

questions of the Scholarship Committee and make a final statement to the Scholarship Committee at the end of the interview.

In consultation with the Scholarship Committee, the Huge Foundation representative will make the final determination regarding winners and will notify all finalists, by telephone or email, as to its final decisions on or before March 21, 2016.
