Osher Foundation Grants Towson University $1 million to Fund Reentry Scholarships
The Osher Foundation defines reentry students as non-traditionally-aged persons who are pursuing a first bachelor's degree after having experienced an interruption of at least five years. Grants are need-based and intended to defray the cost of tuition.
To date, Osher Reentry Scholarship grants have funded 92 Reentry Scholars at Towson University.
"Thanks to the continued financial support of the Osher Foundation more reentry scholars will get the opportunity to renew their dream of pursuing a college degree," Towson University President Robert Caret said.
The Osher Foundation funds reentry scholarships at 73 institutions across 30 states and the District of Columbia. For more info on the Osher Foundation, visit www.osherfoundation.org.
In May 2009, the Bernard Osher Foundation awarded the Towson University Foundation a $1 million endowment to sustain the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Towson University.
