The Osher Reentry Scholarship awards undergraduate students who have a cumulative gap of five or more years in their college education while studying for their first baccalaureate degree. The scholarship is open to any major and financial need is considered.

Vice President for University Advancement, Dr. Barbara Breier, said this will be the third year Texas State is receiving this scholarship—something she labels as prestigious. An institution must be invited to receive scholarship funds from the Osher Foundation. Texas State is one of only ninety institutions in the nation to receive these funds. Breier said Texas State was chosen due to the nearly 4,600 reentry students eligible for the Osher Reentry scholarship and the amount of resources the university offers for students, such as the Non-Traditional Student Organization and Career Services.

Each institution is awarded $50,000 per year and eligible students can receive scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on their need. Breier said in the 2012-2013 school year, Texas State had 23 Osher Reentry scholars—the minimum amount of students an institution can fund.

“This is a very prestigious scholarship. It’s a prestigious institution. We really don’t have many scholarships specifically for reentry students.”
– Dr. Barbara Breier

Breier said most scgolarships are tailored to incoming freshmen or certain majors. For more information on the Osher Reentry Scholarship or to apply, you can visit the Texas State website.
