Scholars network with the business community beginning their first semester and continuing through graduation.
More than 50 business professionals from Omaha volunteer annually to serve as mentors to students in the Scholars Academy. These mentors commit to meeting with a Scholar monthly from September through April to discuss career goals, give advice, and build the Scholars' network.
Companies in the Omaha area also host Scholars for business visits, giving students a glimpse into what a career would look like in a specific field and company. Participating companies have included Union Pacific, Fiserv, Dundee Bank, Flywheel, LinkedIn, First National Bank, Valmont, and more.
