UMass Amherst opened my eyes and mind to a multitude of ways of looking at the world. I am thankful for the top-notch education I received and how this experience enlarged the dream for my life. UMass Amherst gave me a lot – now I'm glad to give back.

Gifts to support or endow scholarships go directly to deserving students, recognizing their achievements and helping meet the cost of tuition and fees. And they make an immediate difference—not just in paying the bills, but in inspiring students through the trust you show in their ability to reach their full potential.
By establishing a scholarship or contributing to an existing fund, you join a distinguished group of benefactors from all walks of life—individuals, families, and business leaders who share the gratification that comes from making a real difference in the education of a deserving UMass Amherst student.
An investment in the future, a UMass Amherst scholarship is also an invitation and a challenge to a student of today to become one of tomorrow’s leaders. For you, it’s a chance to honor or memorialize a loved one or to mark your own accomplishments.
There are hundreds of annual and endowed scholarships currently available to UMass Amherst students.
