Provost's Graduate Fellowship

Graduate Fellowship

The Provost's Graduate Fellowship is a one-year award offered to high achieving newly admitted master's students with a residency status of international, out-of-state, regional or proximity. While UMass Lowell's tuition and fees are competitive with other top graduate schools, the purpose of this award is to make our excellent master's programs even more affordable for you. The fellowships are offered in the range of $4,000 - $8,000. All eligible applicants will be automatically considered for the fellowship. No additional application is required. We strongly encourage graduate applicants to apply earlier to increase their chances of receiving a fellowship. Award recipients are required to confirm enrollment by paying the enrollment deposit before the given deadline to secure their awards.

  • Must maintain the residency status of international or out-of-state.
