MassPIRG student chapters across the state pool resources through a waivable fee each semester and hire professional staff to work with students on these issues. UMass Lowell students have voted to fund a MassPIRG chapter on campus. Therefore, all undergraduate students are assessed the $11 waivable charge each semester. Volunteer, leadership, and internship opportunities are available for students on campus.
