Campuses in the home stretch as deadline nears for Osher Scholarship Fund

 

June5, 2011 (El Cajon) – After several years as a stay-at-home mom with three young children, Vicki Watkins faced the prospect of going back to work after a marital split. She struggled at first to make ends meet with a near-minimum-wage job as a retail clerk, and then decided with some trepidation to return to school. At Cuyamaca College, she found the support she needed – an on-campus job and financial aid, including a $1,000 Osher scholarship, made possible by donations and matching dollars from the Bernard Osher Foundation.
