Welcome to the Goodrich Scholarship ProgramAccepting Applications
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. The Goodrich Scholarship Program now boasts at least 1,350 alumni who in the 40 years of their community connectedness have continued to contribute as lawyers, educators, doctors, social workers, engineers, artists, business professionals, elected officials, directors of non-profit organizations, law enforcement officers, among many others.
The program provides financial aid in the form of tuition and general fees, a textbook voucher, a rigorous general education curriculum, and academic support services. Applicants who have earned more than 31 college credits by May of the year they would enter Goodrich are NOT eligible for the scholarship. Applicants who receive a Nebraska state Regents or NU-Paths scholarship are NOT eligible for the Goodrich scholarship. ONLY United States Citizens or legal non-citizens of the United States who are residents of Nebraska are eligible for this scholarship.
Because of our state-of-the-art educational facilities (student study lounge, tutorial rooms, etc.), our cutting-edge teaching methods, and our ever-available support personnel (professors, graduate assistants, and staff), we have continued to be a leader since the 1970s in the retention and graduation of academically strong and educationally motivated students from diverse backgrounds.
The Goodrich Scholarship Program has won many awards including, the Theodore M. Hesburgh Certificate Award for Faculty Development to Enhance Undergraduate Teaching and Learning, University-wide Departmental Teaching Award from the University of Nebraska System (Goodrich was the first UNO department to win this $25,000 prestigious award), Retention Excellence Award from the Noel-Levitz National Center for Student Retention, Excellence in Teaching Awards at the College and University Levels, Excellence in Research Awards at the local and national levels and the Outstanding Nebraska Teacher Award from the Omaha World Herald.
A composite of selection criteria is used to evaluate both merit and financial need. Criteria include application data, financial analysis, academic record, personal interview, EPPE, personal life-experience essay and references.
