The Scholars Academy is a close-knit community of ambitious and high-achieving students who want to challenge themselves while pursuing a degree. Throughout the four years in the program, Scholars are mentored by business professionals in the Omaha community, enroll in special business courses taught by award-winning faculty, and gain real-world experience through community engagement and international travel.
The Scholars Academy is possible thanks to generous donations from Dennis and Ruth Duffy, Carl Mammel and the Virginia Pettengill Estate. Through their gifts, every Scholar receives a minimum $2,500 annual scholarship, awarded over four years, for a total of $10,000. Learn more.
