Norman and Ruth Good Educational Scholarships

The Norman and Ruth Good Educational Endowment Scholarship was established in 1984. Norman and Ruth Good were philanthropists their entire lives and valued education. Originally from Chappell, Nebraska, Norman graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University and spent his life in business. A native of Cowles, Nebraska, and a graduate of NWU herself, Ruth taught in the public school system until her marriage to Norman. As a wife and mother, Ruth was a contributing partner in all family enterprises. Through their dedication to work and devotion to family and education, Norman and Ruth Good generously established this scholarship to benefit students attending private colleges in Nebraska.

To apply, you must be a current college student attending a private college in Nebraska with junior or senior standing in the upcoming academic year. The applicant must have a 2.5 GPA or greater on a 4.0 scale. Selection of recipients will be based on academic achievement. The applicant will not receive more than one-half of his/her total educational needs from this scholarship. Scholarships funded from this endowment fund will be for the purpose of college degree programs and not for special studies, summer programs, or institutions that do not offer college degree diplomas. Those who receive this scholarship are eligible to renew for one additional year of this scholarship if continued academic achievement is demonstrated.

$2,000 (4 Awards, renewable for 1 additional year if still an undergraduate student)
