Welcome to the Goodrich Scholarship Program
The Goodrich Scholarship Program began in 1972 through Senator Glenn Goodrich’s enabling budget amendment. The program offers a merit-and-need-based scholarship to students who will attend only the University of Nebraska at Omaha. (Note that the scholarship does not transfer to UNL or UNMC). The Goodrich Scholarship Program now boasts over 1,400 alums who, for over 40 years, have continued to connect and contribute to their communities as lawyers, educators, doctors, social workers, engineers, artists, business professionals, elected officials, directors of non-profit organizations, technologists, writers, and law enforcement officers, among many others.
For students selected, Goodrich will pay tuition and general fees for a maximum of 140 credit hours or until graduation, whichever comes first. Goodrich also provides a $200 book voucher per semester. Goodrich’s specialized freshman/sophomore curriculum is part of UNO’s general education requirements. This Goodrich curriculum consists of HUMN 1200 (Autobiographical Reading and Writing), ENGL 1150 (English Composition I), ENGL 1160 (English Composition II) and HUMN 1110 (Perspectives on USAmerican Culture). In the sophomore year, scholars take GDRH 2110 (Lifespan Development) and GDRH 2120 (Social Issues). The experience of shared courses is an integral part of the Goodrich Scholarship Program and a key factor in our Goodrich scholars’ academic success.
NOTE: Applicants who receive tuition scholarships including but not limited to Regents, NU-Paths, Chancellor's, Dean's and Buffett cannot combine or stack any of those awards with a Goodrich scholarship. For more information about stacking scholarships, please contact UNO's Office of Financial Aid at (402) 554.2327.
