Try a college course in September funded by an Osher Scholarship of up to $500. University College is pleased to announce the availability of Osher Scholarships for people, who may not otherwise be considering college, to discover its rewards. A college education can mean better income, more career options and job satisfaction.
To qualify, a student must be a Maine resident, a high school graduate or GED recipient, and someone who is committed to completing a 100, 200 or developmental-level course offered through University College campuses or at local ITV sites, e.g., Penquis Higher Education Center in Dover-Foxcroft; Dexter Regional High School in Dexter; Greenville High School in Greenville; Piscataquis Community High School in Guilford; Forest Hills CSD in Jackman; Penquis Valley High School in Milo; and Nokomis Regional High School in Newport. Preference is given to first-time students.
The goal of the program is to invite participation in a college course while encouraging the Osher Scholar to apply for both admission into a degree program and for financial aid to assist in paying for it.
Call Merlene Sanborn or Helen Kelly at 564-2942 or 1-800-590-2942 at the Penquis Higher Education Center today for more information about the Osher Scholarship program, courses, degree programs of the University of Maine System, and for a scholarship request form. Fall 2003 Osher Scholarships will be awarded beginning June 23. Now is the time to start the process for taking a college course on an Osher Scholarship in September.
