Establish a Named Scholarship

Establishing a Named Scholarship

Student success is UMass Lowell’s No. 1 priority. When our students succeed, their success ripples outward. We hear it time and again from their employers: UML graduates are special. They’re hard workers. They’re problem solvers. They’re team players with talent to burn. 

So many of our students have everything it takes to succeed, except the funds they need to reach their educational goals. You can build a better future for UML students and for us all by investing in student scholarships.

Give to scholarships or contact Derek Berger, associate vice chancellor for development, for more information.

How to Establish a Named Scholarship

Named scholarships can pay tribute to a loved one or special faculty member, preserve a family name or highlight a company presence. Scholarship donors receive special communication from their scholarship recipient and have the opportunity to meet them at our annual scholarship event.

Annual Named Scholarship

  • Annual named scholarships depend on a gift from a donor every year
  • Donors may designate the college or school in which the scholarship is awarded
  • Minimum $2,500 gift per year over a four-year period (minimum $10,000 total commitment)
Endowed Named Scholarships
  • Students are awarded scholarships each year from a portion of the earnings generated by the principal of the gift 
  • Any remainder earnings are reinvested in the fund to preserve and ensure the growth of the endowment in perpetuity 
  • Donors may designate the college, school, department or program in which the scholarship is awarded, as well as other appropriate criteria 
  • Minimum $25,000 commitment payable over a period of up to five years

Legacy Named Scholarships 

You can ensure a UML education remains within reach for future generations by establishing a named scholarship through your estate plan.
