OASES offers scholarships to nontraditional students to encourage and support their academic success. For many of the scholarships, preference will be given to first degree undergraduate students. A number of the scholarships have provisions to benefit persons from particular backgrounds. Efforts will be made to match recipients with specific criteria set forth by scholarship donors. Award amounts may vary annually. Awards are determined by the Adult Students Scholarship Selection Committee established by the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services for the OASES, Carol A. Douglas, and Osher Reentry Scholarships.
