The Bernard Osher Foundation
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes are found on the campuses of 119 colleges and universities from Maine to Hawaii and Alaska. Each provides a distinctive array of non-credit courses and activities specifically developed for seasoned adults aged 50 or older who are interested in learning for the joy of learning. The Foundation also provides support to the National Resource Center for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes at Northwestern University. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Rhode Island is one of the newest OLLIs. The OLLI at URI was established in October 2008 with a $100,000 grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation.
