Courses & Events

With support from our members, the Osher Institute has established a scholarship program for deserving adult learners who simply cannot afford the registration fees for Osher courses. Qualified seniors would be able to enroll for just $10 per course with the remainder of the fee coming from the scholarship fund.Working with senior centers in six counties-Douglas, Riley, Shawnee, Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte-we'll identify eligible seniors. To qualify, seniors must meet one of three conditions: Live in subsidized housing; Receive food stamps; Be on Medicaid.Once they qualify they can register for two courses each semester. To apply for a scholarship, the applicants should call or visit their county's senior center. The senior center staff will determine the applicants' eligibility, and if they qualify, they'll be entered into the Osher Institute's database. Then the applicant can simply call Osher's Contact Center to register for as many as two courses per semester. (Scholarships are only available for Osher courses. They cannot be used for special events.)To help support the scholarship fund, please click the link below. If you have questions, please contact Linda Kehres at 785-864-1373 or linda.k@ku.edu. Thank you.
