Osher Scholarships


The School of Continuing Education is pleased to announce the availability of 10 to 15 scholarships for adult returning students. If you are thinking of returning to UWM and qualify, this could be an excellent opportunity to receive up to $5,000 of tuition support.

To qualify you must be 25 years of age or older, and returning to school after a cumulative gap in your education of at least five years. Candidates include adults entering undergraduate studies for the first time, and those with some university credit. All candidates must meet federal requirements for students in need of financial aid. Applicants must have undergraduate status (graduate students are not eligible).

For more information, contact Shari Vinluan.
414-227-3223  or


In the past, UWM restricted each applicant to $5,000 in scholarships. Now, scholars can reapply in subsequent scholarship years and continue to receive funds with the hope that a higher percentage will be successful in reaching their goals to attain degrees.

There have been 73 scholarship recipients and 29 graduates since the program’s inception over six years ago.
