  New Osher Scholarship Available to Non-Traditional Students

Jan. 12, 2012

A new source of scholarships for non-traditional students has become available with a grant to DSU of $50,000 by the Bernard Osher Foundation to establish DSU’s Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund.
The Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund will be allocated during the 2012-2013 academic year to non-traditional students at DSU using the following guidelines to select Osher Scholars:
  • Students have experienced a cumulative gap in their education of five or more years.
  •  Students are at the undergraduate level and pursuing their first baccalaureate degree.
  • Students anticipate participation in the workforce for a significant period of time subsequent to graduation and are ideally between the ages of 25-50.
  • Students demonstrate financial need, as well as academic promise and a commitment to complete a degree program.
Osher Scholars may be full-time or part-time students, and may be awarded the scholarship again in the second and subsequent years if they continue to meet the criteria and funds are available. The scholarship awards will only be applied to tuition cost.
This scholarship will not be made available to students seeking an additional degree, or for visiting international students.
Students are encouraged to apply today for the Osher Reentry Scholarship. To apply online, students should visit
