The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has been selected for a $1 million endowment to support scholarships for nontraditional college students who want to return to school to finish their educations.

The Bernard Osher Foundation of San Francisco selected UALR for the endowment — the only institution in Arkansas to offer the Osher Re-Entry Scholars Program.

Osher, a patron of education and the arts, established the foundation in 1977 to seek to improve quality of life through support for higher education and the arts. He's funding the UALR endowment from his personal reserves.

The foundation has already provided the school $50,000 each year since 2012. The first Osher scholars are set to graduate this month.
