To help ensure the continuing strength of the Oxford Summer Seminar, we will soon be launching a fund-raising initiative. Although we realize that students already pay a significant amount to attend the Oxford Summer Seminar, the UMass Amherst program continues to be one of the least expensive summer programs in the country. In short, the program is affordable because it is subsidized by the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, by the Commonwealth College, by various campus departments and by generous alumni who understand the value of studying abroad and who continue to prize the Oxford experience as one of the best of their undergraduate years. We hope you will consider supporting future students, many of whom have limited resources, who are eager to live, learn, and study in Oxford.

Even before we start our formal fund-raising drive, we welcome support from alumni and others who want to give back to the program. To make a donation please click the "Give" button below. Note that the drop-down menu on this page does not have Oxford Summer Seminar as an option. Do not be daunted! Simply choose "other" as your category and indicate where you want your money to go. It will find its way to us.
