The University of Nebraska at Omaha will offer a Housing Scholarship to ROTC students admitted or enrolled who are eligible for a Regents Scholarship and have been awarded an Air Force ROTC Scholarship. The UNO ROTC Housing Scholarship would cover the cost of housing for 12 months and would be offered in lieu of the Regents Scholarship. The ROTC Housing Scholarship is renewable and a student may hold it for up to four years. ROTC Housing Scholarship recipients who opt out of the ROTC program, but remain enrolled at UNO, would have the Regents Scholarship reinstated, assuming that renewal criteria had been met.
