Apply

We admit eligible undergraduates with an academic need who may have a documented disability, are low-income or first-generation.

An ideal participant must be an undergraduate who meets the eligibility requirements, possesses a strong desire, and be highly motivated to successfully graduate with a postsecondary degree. An applicant could be an undergraduate from any major or degree at UNL. They could also be undecided and we also cater to non-traditional students. Special consideration is given to students who are both low-income and first-generation OR both low-income and disabled. Ultimately, it is our objective to see our participants stay in college until they earn their baccalaureate degrees.
