Summer College Scholarships
Specific programs within UMass Amherst Summer College may offer a limited number of partial scholarships awarded on the basis of need and merit. Please read the program descriptions carefully to see if scholarships are available. Scholarship applications must be emailed no later than March 1, 2013, but we encourage you not to wait for the deadline. Scholarship support is very limited and intended for those families who cannot afford the full cost of the program.
To apply for a scholarship, with the help of your parent or guardian, please write a brief statement (no more than one page) addressing how receiving a scholarship would affect your ability to attend the specific program you have applied for. We cannot process your scholarship application until you have completed and submitted your online application (with all supporting materials) for a specific program.
Your scholarship essay should include your Name, Date of Birth and the name and email of your Parent or Guardian. Tell us which Summer College program you wish to attend. Also please provide the reference number you will find on the acknowledgement page that you saved and printed when you completed your online program application.
Your scholarship essay should be emailed no later than March 1, 2013.
Searching for Additional Funding
Our funding is limited, and scholarships are competitive. Many of our previous participants have been successful in finding funding from their schools, communities, and elsewhere to support their ability to attend UMass Amherst Summer College. We encourage you to explore as many options as possible.
