The Osher Faculty Grant is supported by the generosity of the Osher Institute and its members for the benefit of Boise State faculty. Funding is intended to defray expenses related to the proposed project; it is not a faculty stipend. The Osher Faculty Grant has awarded more than $115,000 since it was established.

Past recipients include Leslie Kendrick, Department of Radiologic Sciences; Bhaskar Chittoori, Department of civil engineering; Alessandro Meregaglia, Albertsons Library; Jim McNamara, Department of Geosciences; and Tim Thornes, Department of English.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a membership-based lifelong learning program for intellectually curious adults over age 50 that is offered through the Division of Extended Studies. The Osher Institute offers a variety of college-level, noncredit lectures, short courses, and special events.
