Scholarships ⁄ Financial Aid

The UNO Office of Financial Aid administers federal financial aid programs, coordinates grants and scholarships with state agencies, and awards numerous endowed scholarships. Our staff is available to assist you with questions or provide information on a walk-in or call-in basis each weekday. Appointments may also be scheduled with a financial aid counselor.

A wide range of scholarship programs at UNO has been established to recognize excellent high school achievement by incoming freshman students and exceptional scholastic performance by upper-class students already in attendance at the University. Scholarship funds have been provided for students by the state of Nebraska, corporations, clubs, community organizations and friends of the University.

Incoming freshmen who are graduating high school seniors will be considered for most of our incoming freshman scholarships by submitting the Application for Admission by February 1 of their senior year. We accept ACT⁄SAT scores for high school seniors through the December test date.
