Invest in the Scholars Academy
SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Scholarships play an important role in recruiting and retaining the best business students. As one Scholar said, “I would have attended a different school if I didn’t receive the scholarships I have. I couldn’t afford to attend UNO without the generosity of our donors.”
With this financial support, the Scholars are able to give back to the UNO and Omaha community in real and tangible ways, whether that’s being president of a student organization, volunteering at Aksarben Senior Living, or engaging in a community service project.
Each Scholar receives a minimum $2,500 annual scholarship, awarded over four years, for a total of $10,000—all of which are provided through private gifts. Our goal is to offer each Scholar a $5,000 annual scholarship, which will only be possible through additional gifts.
CBA SCHOLARS WIDEN THEIR HORIZONS
International experiences are a vital part of a Scholar’s experience in the program. Studying abroad allows students to experience first-hand the dynamics at play in today’s increasingly connected world, all while making them more capable and more marketable to future employers.
We are seeking sponsors to help support this life-changing experience for our junior class.
EXPERIENCES ENRICH THEIR EDUCATION
The Scholars Academy also provides activities designed to create camaraderie and teamwork within and between each of the cohorts through retreats, community service projects, and other scheduled learning opportunities. Without these activities, the Academy would be only a scholarship program instead of an immersive leadership development program.
SUPPORT THE ACADEMY
Financial gifts to the Academy make both an immediate and long-term impact on the Scholars, helping support these and other activities that enrich Scholars’ education and college experiences.
Gifts may go to a specific need, as stated above, or be invested in the CBA Scholars Academy Excellence Fund, which funds all aspects of the program.
