Omaha Home for Boys Scholarships

Application Process

Our scholarship program is one of many structures we have in place to help us achieve our mission. In addition to financial support, we are also able to stay connected with our youth and support them with enrollment, registration, completion of financial aid documents and occasional texts, phone calls and emails.

We strongly encourage those 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.

    • Inspiration Hill Residential Care Program
