In an effort to help offset the financial hardships that many students are currently experiencing, UMass Lowell has allocated more than $1 million for summer 2021 scholarships.
Designated for either currently enrolled UMass Lowell undergraduate students or for new students accepted into an undergraduate degree or undergraduate certificate program for the summer 2021 semester, these summer scholarships are being offered in addition to traditional financial-aid programs such as federal grants and student loans. Students are encouraged to apply for the new aid soon by visiting UMass Lowell’s summer financial aid page. Early applications will be given priority consideration.
“We realize the financial challenges facing our students have increased due to the overall impact of COVID-19,” said Steven Tello, Vice Provost of Graduate, Online & Professional Studies, which oversees UMass Lowell’s summer programs. “We have frozen tuition rates for the third straight year and increased our scholarship and grant funding, creating a more affordable opportunity for students to move their education forward. We want to see them succeed, and we hope these efforts assist our students in achieving their educational and professional goals.”
An early pioneer in online education, UMass Lowell’s Division of Graduate, Online & Professional Studies has been making the university’s traditional academic programs available to students all over the world for more than 20 years. Our dedication to quality online educational programs has earned several awards and national recognition for innovative programming, faculty development, accessibility and online teaching.
