The Bernard Osher Foundation has renewed its grant with Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Multidisciplinary Studies, awarding $50,000 to extend the Osher Reentry Scholarship for the 2007-2008 academic year.

The Osher Foundation defines reentry students as individuals between the ages of 25 and 50, whose collegiate studies at a four-year campus were interrupted by circumstances beyond their control at least five years ago and who now want to resume their studies.

Ten scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded for the upcoming academic year to RIT students who are matriculated in a Center for Multidisciplinary Studies program. Incoming students are also encouraged to apply.
