Scholarship awards are valuable for the contribution they make toward reducing a student's tuition expense and they are important for the recognition and honor they confer on the recipient. HFA scholarships are typically in the range of $300 to $4,000 and are made possible by the generous support of UMass Amherst alumni and friends and by the Dean's Office.

Academic scholarships described on this page can be applied to via AcademicWorks, the university's online scholarship application and management site. Many of the scholarships below are applied to by students submitting the general and HFA conditional application on AcademicWorks with no further action required. It is important to continue to check for additional opportunities on AcademicWorks and note emails that announce additional opportunities throughout the year.
