Osher 1

Thanks to the generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation, thousands of California Community College students, like you, may receive an Osher Scholarship as part of the California Community Colleges Scholarship Endowment. Mr. Osher’s vision is to “not only benefit the community college students of today, but countless more for years to come.”

The Bernard Osher Foundation Scholarship is offered every year at Southwestern College.  Approximately $18,000 in scholarship funds are awarded each year and awards are based on student enrollment for the previous academic year. Annual awards can be as much as $1,100 each and are pro-rated, based on enrollment.  

Awards will be adjusted based on enrolled status and determined as follows:

    Full-time  (12 or more units per term) = up to $550.00/semester     
    Three-quarter-time  (9 - 11.99 units per term) = up to $412.50/semester
    Half-time  (6 - 8.99 units per term)  = up to $275.00/semester

To be eligible to apply, you must ...

  • Have completed at least 24 or more "degree applicable" units, and
  • Be enrolled at least half time (6 or more units) during all terms in which the award remains active, and 
  • Have received a BOG Fee Waiver, and 
  • Be making Satisfactory Academic Progress, and 
  • Have demonstrated financial need.

The application period for the Osher Scholarship has closed.
Please check back in Summer 2017 for next year's opportunity.
