Establish a Scholarship

There are two ways to create a scholarship at UMass Amherst. You may create either or both:

An annual scholarship, provided through a specific donation each year for a set period of time, usually five years. An annual scholarship of $2,000, for example, currently covers tuition for an in-state student.

An endowed scholarship, in which the gift is invested permanently and the income earned each year is used to provide the annual award. An endowment of $50,000 currently provides $2,000 annually in scholarship support.

Either type of scholarship may carry your name, that of your family, or of another individual or group you would like to honor or memorialize. If you wish, you may designate award criteria. You may want to assist students majoring in a particular field of study, or with specific interests and aspirations, or someone from your hometown. You may base your support on academic merit or unmet financial need, or both. You can assist a recipient throughout his or her academic career or help a different student each year. The options are virtually limitless, and the choice is yours.
