Osher Reentry Scholarship

Thanks to a generous gift from the Bernard Osher Foundation, IUB is able to award Osher Reentry Scholar awards to a minimum of 20 recipients each year. Award amounts vary from $1250-$3000 depending on enrollment status (full-time vs. part-time) and available funds.

To be eligible for an Osher Reentry Scholarship, a student must:

  • be entering or retuning to IUB after experiencing a cumulative gap of at least five or more years in their higher education
  • be pursuing their first baccalaureate degree
  • demonstrate financial need by completing the FAFSA
  • anticipate participation in the workforce for a significant period of time subsequent to graduation
  • show academic promise and a commitment to obtaining their degree
