Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community (UNO CIEF)

The Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community (ELLC) is open to students of any field of study at UNO. Students who are accepted into the Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community as a freshman, will live in Scott Village during their freshman year. Students will also receive one of a limited number of $1,500 Entrepreneurship Scholarships, with the possibility of renewal at $1,000 for returning sophomores for startup costs and travel experiences.

When applying for housing, students should select Scott Village as their first housing preference and indicate their interest in the Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community. Students accepted into the ELLC are GUARANTEED housing on campus.

The Entrepreneurship Community Scholarship may be stacked with other UNO scholarships, except Scott Scholars. Students in the Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community are required to take an entrepreneurship class together as a cohort in the Fall semester of freshman and sophomore year.

High school GPA and ACT (or SAT) scores, are pulled from the university application, however, GPA or test scores are not the deciding factor. Rather, we want to learn about your interest and accomplishments in innovation and entrepreneurship. Priority will be given to early applicants.
