Next Generation Leaders
Supporting Omaha’s emerging workforce with inclusive excellence.
The Next Generation Leaders (NGL) scholarship program is designed to attract, recruit and ensure the progression of admitted students who represent a multitude of lived experiences, perspectives and ideas.
NGL will support an educational environment where students can become champions of a welcoming university climate. Further, the program will invest in talent to yield strong Creighton graduates with a deepened cultural competency and understanding of inclusive excellence; graduates who will enter their profession of choice with an inclusive mindset.
There is commitment throughout senior leadership at both Union Pacific and Creighton for this program to be successful. Over the course of their four years, students will have access and exposure to leaders from across both organizations.
The Next Generation Leaders Program is open to students from underrepresented groups with a high school GPA of 3.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
