The Goodrich Scholarship Program began in 1972 through Senator Glenn Goodrich's enabling budget amendment. The program offers a merit-and-need-based scholarship to students who will attend ONLY the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The Goodrich Scholarship Program now boasts at least 1,350 alumni who in the 40 years of their community connectedness have continued to contribute as lawyers, educators, doctors, social workers, engineers, artists, business professionals, elected officials, directors of non-profit organizations, law enforcement officers, among many others. The Goals of the Goodrich Scholarship Program are: To provide scholars opportunities for sound and innovative educational experiences; To enable scholars to connect with each other, with faculty, with the university and with the community at large; To empower scholars to build strong positive self-concepts; and To equip scholars with skills that will enable them to assume leadership roles
