The Office of National Scholarships at UMass Lowell provides guidance to both graduate and undergraduate students about major national fellowships and scholarships across all academic disciplines.

These prestigious and competitive awards can be used for graduate study, study abroad, internships, language training, and other purposes. Amounts vary from $5,000 to $50,000 per year.  
Each scholarship has its own protocols in terms of eligibility, funding, mission and so forth. Students are advised to begin the search and application process at least a year in advance. 
The Office of National Scholarships offers advice and support before, during, and after the application process, which can often be time-consuming and complex. Our office helps students find and apply for nationally competitive scholarships including the Boren, Fulbright, Gates-Cambridge, Gilman, Goldwater, Marshall, Mitchell, NSF GRFP, Soros, Truman, and Udall Scholarships. All UMass Lowell students are welcome to contact National Scholarship Advisor Rae Mansfield at for application assistance.
