Thanks to the generosity of the The Bernard Osher Foundation, the network of Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes across the United States is meeting the needs of older learners who want to learn simply for the joy of learning and personal fulfillment.

The Bernard Osher Foundation, a 31-year-old philanthropic organization headquartered in San Francisco, supports higher education and the arts. Post-secondary scholarships are provided to selected institutions nationally, with a recent emphasis on meeting the needs of reentry students. The Foundation supports a growing national network of lifelong learning institutes for seasoned adults located at nearly 118 colleges and universities from Maine to Hawaii and Alaska. The Foundation also funds integrative medicine centers at Harvard University, the University of California, San Francisco, and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden as well as a career development awards program at NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Arts grants, generally made to organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area and the State of Maine, seek to bring new and younger audiences to classical music and the performing arts.
