The new Legacy Scholarship will provide up to $10,000 to students who live out of state and are the children or grandchildren of alumni, enabling them to enroll at UML for close to in-state rates.


UMass Lowell attracts talented students from all 50 states and more than 80 countries around the world. They’re drawn to the university for the chance to get an exceptional education at an affordable price. For students who live outside of Massachusetts and are the children or grandchildren of alumni, that education just became even more affordable.

Beginning in fall 2018, the university will offer Legacy Scholarships, an annual award of up to $10,000 to incoming freshmen and transfer students who live out of state and are the children or grandchildren of UML graduates. The scholarship is renewable for eight continuous semesters for full-time students who maintain good academic standing.

“The Legacy Scholarship is our way of recognizing alumni who contribute so much to the life of our school, and it helps us expand our proud River Hawk family,” says John Feudo, vice chancellor for advancement. “It means that legacy students from outside Massachusetts will be able to attend UML at close to our in-state rate.”
