Three UNO Students Earn ROTC Scholarships
Omaha - Three University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) students--Jonathan Martikainen, Matt Mines and Edel-Mark Valdez--recently earned four-year, full-ride U.S. Army ROTC scholarships.
“This is a great accomplishment for these three cadets,” said Major Dennis Murphy, who leads the Creighton University Military Science Program. The program has a partnership agreement, which allows UNO students to get their degree through UNO and participate in Army ROTC at Creighton. “There’s a great deal of work that goes into earning these scholarships, but they end result is a great one for the individual students and our program.”

Two-, three- and four-year full ride scholarship are available.
