Access to education is a pillar of our mission. It’s not enough to be a great university; we’re determined to be an affordable one for all talented and motivated students. In a time of declining state support and rising student loan debt, you can make a real difference.
When you endow a scholarship or support an existing fund, you help deserving students overcome the financial challenges that stand between them and their dreams—a good education, a good job and a good future.
Bring Diversity to Nursing Endowment Fund - Nursing
“I am gratified that my scholarship promotes diversity in nursing. One of the reasons I chose to pursue nursing was to promote cultural awareness. My grandpa was in a hospital, and I witnessed a big language barrier. I would like to lessen that barrier and help people feel included in their nursing care.”
Alan A. Desrochers ’72 Engineering Endowed Scholarship Fund - Computer Engineering
“Scholarship support was an important factor for me in deciding which university to attend. As the oldest of four siblings, I know that my parents can’t afford to sink all of their money into my education. I want to take as much of the financial burden off of them as possible, and this scholarship is helping me greatly.”
Music Alumni Scholarship - Music Studies
“I’m the first in my family to go to college, and affording it has been a real challenge. Scholarships have helped me to make it all the way through to my senior year while participating in the Marching and Concert Band. I wouldn’t be able to do this, or attend UMass Lowell, without this support.”
Laurence R. Siegel Endowed Scholarship Fund - Graduate Biotech/UTeach Alumnus
“Receiving this assistance allowed me to focus on my academics. I was able to gain experience in biotech, continue my NIH-funded research, serve as a resident advisor and engage in a teaching practicum to gain my teaching licensure. I am now a science teacher at Lowell Public High School. Words cannot explain how grateful I am.”
