Internships and Financial Support
Scholars pursuing any major who have completed 50 credit hours at UNO and maintained a cumulative 3.0 GPA are eligible to apply and upon acceptance are placed in sites in the community or in major-related offices on campus. Scholars work for no more than 10 hours a week and receive approximately $1200 for the fall semester. All interns also enroll in a one-hour per week seminar (for which they receive 3 hours of Public Administration credit). The Stephenson-Harrington Internship has existed since 1992 and is well regarded on campus and in the community. For more information, contact Lucy Garza Westbrook at (402) 554.3055. Applications are online at www.unomaha.edu/goodrich/stephenson.php.
Financial support and some pre-professional programming are available to Goodrich Scholars and Project Achieve members who have an interest in pursuing a career in law. Inquiries about this program should be directed to Troy Romero at (402) 554.3466.
This scholarship is awarded to a Goodrich Scholar and/or an Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority member in memory of Brittany Williams, an extremely promising Goodrich scholar in her junior year and an AKA member. Her January 2008 tragic death prompted the launching of the scholarship fund. The award is given each fall to a junior with a GPA of 3.0 or above. A brief essay and letter of application must be submitted within October 1 to October 19. For further information, contact Imafedia Okhamafe at (402) 554.3467
The Larry Bradley Textbook Scholarship Award
This textbook scholarship is contingent on the availability of money in the Larry Bradley Goodrich Textbook Support Fund, established by Mr. Bradley, a long-time Goodrich supporter, a Goodrich alum, and a 2005 recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Service Award from UNO’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service for all his contributions to affordable quality education. Philanthropist Bradley is an audit partner for KPMG LLP, based in New York. The Larry Bradley textbook scholarship goes to current Goodrich scholars who have excelled academically (above a 3.2 cum GPA and with no W’s or F’s).
Goodrich operates this fund as a short-term, interest-free loan program that loans up to $250 at a time. For additional information about the loan program, contact our office at (402) 554.2274.
Some summer tuition scholarships are available for active Goodrich scholars through contributions from Goodrich Alumni and other sources. The availability of funds to support tuition and fees for any summer session will be announced in late spring, and all scholars will be notified by UNO e-mail IF funds are available. The funds will be dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis among those eligible and interested in attending summer school.
