Annually NOCCC offers four $1,500 scholarships to North Omaha health professions students. This funding is sponsored by UNMC College of Public Health, Center for Reducing Health Disparities.
$1500 (4 available)
The North Omaha Community Care Council Scholarship will be awarded to a full-time, need-based scholarship to incoming or current undergraduate students pursuing a degree in a health-based area. Eligible candidates must also be a graduate from an Omaha high school who will be attending a Nebraska-based university or community college. This student will have a background that reflects one or more of the characteristics that achieve NOCCC’s mission. While it is not required to apply, we are highly interested in receiving applications from students who are majoring in the healthcare field and reside in North Omaha.
This scholarship is for tuition or books/supplies and may not be used to replace any institutional grant aid or other scholarship support in the student’s current financial aid package. The scholarship must be used in its entirety to provide additional scholarship support to the student for use during the current academic year. The scholarship may not be reduced to support additional students nor may any portion be used to offset administrative costs. Payment will be made directly to offices associated with student payments, and it may not be refunded to students.
Once awarded, the recipient will be known as a NOCCC Scholar. The NOCCC Scholar will be asked to complete and submit the Scholarship Recipient Biographical Information Form. The NOCCC Executive Committee will retain a book of NOCCC Scholars’ Biographical Information Forms to be shared at annual meetings.
Previous scholarship recipients will not be eligible to apply at this time.
