UMass Amherst provides thousands of students with scholarships every year. Since its inception, UMass Amherst has shown a strong commitment to providing financial resources to students - including both need and merit based undergraduate scholarships.
The Class of 2011 Scholarship will help grant students the aid they deserve. Students who show financial need and have a GPA of 3.0 and higher will be able to apply for this scholarship. The Class of 2011 scholarship will be awarded each year until the funds are depleted. In choosing this option, the Class of 2011 will provide a gift that keeps on giving: education.
Have an honoree card sent to someone who made a difference in your undergraduate education. After making your gift, email Stephanie Flaherty with the name and contact information of your honoree, and we will send this card inscribed with the following text:
I have made a pledge in your honor to the UMass Amherst Senior Campaign. This contribution was made to acknowledge the difference you have made in my life during my successful journey through a rigorous undergraduate program.
Thanks! for your experiences and opportunities. Leave a lasting legacy, give something back, and help make a difference in the lives of future UMass Amherst students.
Enhance the value of your diploma. Your degree becomes more competitive as UMass Amherst grows stronger.
Support the immediate needs of the campus. Contributions from Seniors are allocated to projects such as the Isle of View renovation.
Increase our funding from corporations and foundations. These groups value the number of private donors, not only the amount of their contributions, when considering grants. Every contribution really counts.
It costs approximately $30,000 to educate each student on campus. Whether you pay in-state or out-of-state tuition, your education has been subsidized by alumni support.
Continue the Tradition. Class gifts are a tradition that began with the Class of 1917. The Class of 2011 is proud to continue this tradition of giving back to UMass Amherst.
