LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Bernard Osher Foundation has given $1 million to the University of Wyoming to establish an endowment to support scholarships for nontraditional students re-entering the university.

The grant permanently establishes the Osher Re-entry Scholarship Program that to date has supported a total of 36 students.

The program provides scholarship support for students pursuing their first bachelor’s degree after a significant break in their studies.

“Re-entry students” are defined as individuals who have experienced a cumulative gap in their postsecondary education of five or more years and who want to resume their undergraduate education. The program benefits students ages 25 to 50 who have years of employability ahead of them.
