Omaha Home for Boys Scholarships

Our Commitment

Omaha Home for Boys is committed to helping every youth reach his or her full academic potential. Thanks to many generous friends of the Home who also believe in this mission we are able to offer our youth a number of scholarships annually.

In addition to providing financial support, the scholarship program gives us an avenue to stay connected with our youth and support them with enrollment, registration, completion of financial aid documents and occasional texts, phone calls and emails throughout their college experience.

We strongly encourage youth receiving our scholarships to attend a two-year college or trade school prior to attending a four-year institution. Age, personal circumstances and other eligibility requirements impact the amount of scholarship awards. Recipients may receive up to $10,000 a year; however, most scholarship recipients are able to reach their education goals with less support.
