Young Scholars Program

The 2015-2016 school year marks the 5th year of the Young Scholars Program as a learning community at UNO. Young Scholars is a privately-funded program that exists due to the generousity of the Jim and Shirley Young family. The goal of the program is to support first-generation students in their pursuit of undergraduate degrees at UNO.

Welcome to the Young Scholars Program!

Students selected for Young Scholars receive a financial scholarship, and become a part of a community of students that receive academic, social, and career development support throughout their undergraduate careers.

This support occurs in a variety of ways including regular meetings with an academic mentor, weekly study hours, group service projects, peer mentoring, involvement in UNO student organizations and activities, and various social activities on and off campus.
