Osher Foundation


The Bernard Osher Foundation recently awarded $1 million to the University of Wyoming to establish an endowment to support scholarships for nontraditional students re-entering the university. The grant permanently establishes the Osher Re-entry Scholarship Program and follows the foundation’s two-year expendable award of $50,000 per year that, to date, has supported a total of 36 students. The program provides scholarship support for students pursuing their first bachelor’s degree after a significant break in their studies.
