The Osher Institute believes the opportunity to participate in our rich intellectual community should be available to anyone who wishes to participate. Scholarships are available for individuals over age 50 whose financial situation prevents participation without scholarship assistance.

Osher Institute scholarships include:

  • A free annual membership (fall and spring semesters)
  • Access to register for offerings on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Half-price discount on up to three (3) fee-based offerings per semester

Please note: Scholarships are not available for fee-based special events or trips. 

Apply Online

If you could benefit from this opportunity, we encourage you to complete and submit the Online Osher Scholarship Application or print a copy of the Osher Scholarship Application (PDF) and mail it to the Osher office at 220 E. Parkcenter Blvd, Boise. Applications will be accepted year-round but expire at the end of each fiscal year (June 30).

Individuals in need may apply for scholarships for three (3) consecutive years. After three years, the member will be asked to take a one-year break with the option to apply again the following year.

For more information, please contact the Osher office at (208) 426-6554 or
