Big endowment for CSUEB
by Barry Zepel
Cal State East Bay’s PACE program has been awarded a $1 million endowment by the Bernard Osher Foundation of San Francisco to enable the university to enhance the educational program designed for full-time working adults by awarding scholarships to a large number of those participating reentry students.
PACE—Program for Accelerated College Education—enables working adult students to make accelerated progress toward a bachelor’s degree with a major in human development, liberal studies, or leadership in hospitality and leisure services. The endowment will allow the university to increase the number of scholarships awarded to the highest achieving PACE students.
It is the second $1 million endowment to be awarded to the university by the Osher Foundation since Cal State East Bay’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute received one that was previously announced on November 15.
