The Osher Scholarship, offered through the University of Maine System, has a new name and is available now. The scholarship is now called the Osher New Beginnings Scholarship. It is to encourage more Maine people of all ages to give college a try by allowing recipients to take one course, including books and required materials. Eligibility still includes those who are a first time student and has been expanded to include individuals who have 30 or fewer credit hours and have not attended in at least five years.
Several Osher New Beginnings Scholarships are available at the Bath/Brunswick Center, and it is important that potential students apply now for the fall semester.
