Creighton Receives Grant for Adult-Learner Scholarships

Some students drop out of college due circumstances beyond their control. While many have dreams of returning to the classroom, the reality can be daunting.

Creighton University has received a three-year $150,000 grant from the Osher Reentry Scholarship Program to help turn those dreams of returning to school a reality. The grant will be used to fund $50,000 in scholarships a year for students enrolling in Creighton University’s University College, which serves adult students.

The Osher Reentry Scholarship Program will provide assistance to individuals between the ages of 25 and 50 who have a financial need and want to return to school and complete a four-year baccalaureate degree.

“Financial aid is much more difficult to obtain for adult students. I am excited that Creighton University will have a source of funding to help these deserving applicants enroll at Creighton University and complete their studies,” said Barb Braden Ph.D., dean of University College.
