Call for applications: Osher Faculty Grant

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Boise State invites full-time tenured, tenure-track and research faculty to apply for grants of up to $7,500 to support research, projects or scholarly work.

The application deadline is March 3, 2023. Award recipients will be announced on or about April 15, 2023. To submit a proposal, visit the Osher Faculty Grant site.

The Osher Faculty Grant is supported by the generosity of the Osher Institute 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 $174,856 since it was established in 2011.

Recipients of the 2022 Osher Faculty Grant include Daniel Fologea, Department of Physics; Linda Reynard, Department of Geosciences; and Juliette Tinker and Henry Charlier, Department of Biological Sciences. Grant recipients are invited to present findings of their research to the Osher audiences once the project is complete.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a membership-based lifelong learning program designed for intellectually curious adults age 50 and over. The Osher Institute is part of the Division of Extended Studies and hosts presenters that include university faculty, industry experts, authors and esteemed speakers from around the country on a wide variety of topics. Programs are provided in person and livestreamed to Osher members everywhere.
