In the College of FAHSS we have two specific Experiential Learning programs that engage students from all our colleges majors. In both programs students learn valuable professional skills, build their resume and expand their network, while also providing a meaningful service to the local community.
Co-op Scholars - A scholarship program given to a small number of incoming freshmen every year across all disciplines at UMass Lowell. Students are given the choice to work alongside a faculty member, or at a community-based organization of their choice.
FAHSS Community Internships - A cost share program in which UMass Lowell will pay half of a student's salary for a community-based internship, and the community partner pays the other half.
For more information on either of these programs, please use the below contact information.
