in supporting Education

Buckle believes our future is built on education and encourages young adults to achieve excellence. That’s why Buckle prides itself on being a fulfilling environment where current and future teammates can continuously improve, expand, and develop new skills, both personally and professionally.

  • UNK Scholarship Endowment: On September 5, 2012, Buckle announced that a permanent endowment had been established in the name of Buckle with a $150,000 gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation. This gift was given to provide annual scholarship awards for students interested in careers related to computer science or information technology. Each year, two $3,000 scholarships will be awarded to students in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems who meet certain academic requirements. This gift directly benefits the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK), where many current and future Buckle teammates receive their education.

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of America: Buckle is a proud supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), and has made a donation to support their mission: "To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens." Boys & Girls Clubs of America fulfill their mission by providing after-school and summer programs where students participate in various activities and programs to make them well-rounded individuals. The most important part of the program is the focus on education, as BGCA aims to ensure that all members graduate from high school on time and ready for post-secondary education.

Buckle cares about the growth and development of its team. Through internship programs, Buckle not only provides a great learning tool for students, but is also able to establish new mentoring and leadership opportunities for current professionals. Buckle internships provide students with the opportunity to learn how their field can be applied to various facets of our business, allows them to gain first-hand experience in solving business challenges, and increases graduate marketability with knowledge of applying skills learned in a professional setting. Offering students a career path that’s as rewarding as it is stimulating and guiding future professionals through today’s challenges are what Buckle internships are all about.
