Goodrich Scholarship Program

Empowering Students, Developing Leaders

Since 1972, the Goodrich Scholarship Program has enabled more than 1,600 students to complete a first-class education at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO). You know many of our alumni today as doctors, educators, engineers, artists, and elected officials. What they are and always will be is Goodrich. Once a Goodricher, always a Goodricher.

Goodrich students establish a dynamic presence on campus. They come hungry, ready to learn and eager to join the UNO community. Many recipients are the first in their families to attend college. They come from underrepresented populations and have earned an opportunity to continue their education. The Goodrich Scholarship has many benefits, including:
- Financial aid in the form of tuition, general fees and textbook support
- A specialized two-year writing-intensive humanities and social science core curriculum that emphasizes cultural and intellectual diversity within our local and global communities
- Academic and non-academic support services

Applicants who will have earned more than 31 college credits by May 2020 are NOT eligible for the Goodrich scholarship. ONLY United States citizens or legal non-citizens of the United States who are residents of Nebraska are eligible for this scholarship.

The Goodrich scholarship is both merit-and-need-based. Merit and financial aid are evaluated based on a composite of selection criteria, including:

  • Application data
  • Financial analysis
  • Academic record
  • In-person interview
  • English Placement and Proficiency Exam (EPPE)
  • Personal life-experience essay
  • References

To remain eligible for Goodrich, ALL Goodrich applicants must take the EPPE (a required assessment that is free) by February 21st, 2020.
Deadline: March 1st, 2020 @ 5:00PM CST
