The Osher Foundation Reentry Scholarship was established by The Bernard Osher Foundation to provide assistance to adult learners who otherwise might not be able to afford a college education. It offers a financial incentive, as well as important recognition, for the most qualified students to work toward degree completion and, ultimately, fulfill their career objectives. Students selected to be Osher Scholars will:

  • Be between 25 and 50 years of age
  • Have been away from school for a minimum of 5 years (you can be a current student and be eligible if you meet this requirement)
  • Be working toward the completion of first baccalaureate degree
  • Be enrolled full time (carrying at least 12 hours) part time (carrying a minimum of six credit hours)
  • Have completed a minimum of 30 credits with at least one semester of completed coursework at The University of Akron with a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA.

To demonstrate movement toward their degree objectives, Osher Scholars must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 at the end of the first semester on scholarship. If a student's GPA falls below a 2.0, the student must document the reasons for the substandard performance, and submit a plan of action to raise the GPA.

Having maintained an appropriate GPA and compiled a strong record of academic performance, Osher Scholars who meet the application requirements may have the opportunity to renew their Osher Reentry Scholarship award, and/or receive additional scholarship support when they are admitted to their degree-granting colleges.

The deadline to apply has been extended until 5 p.m. Monday, April 7.
