Apply for a Scholarship
Scholarships are gift aid that does not need to be repaid. The support available at UMass Lowell, like the Office of National Scholarships, makes it easy for you to search and apply for relevant merit, need-based and private scholarships.
Explore Research Opportunities
There are many opportunities at UML for paid research assistantships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students. Reach out to a faculty member in your department to ask about available research positions. Also check out Honors Fellowships.
Apply for an On-campus Job
You don’t have to be a work study student to get a job on campus. Check JobHawk for "Job Location & Development" or "Departmental Employment" positions. You can also apply to be a Resident Advisor and receive a room and board stipend.
Find an Internship
You can complete internships outside of your classes. Many internships are paid experiences! Check Handshake for internship opportunities for students in all majors, in all years.
Prepare for a Co-op
If you're in the Manning School of Business or the Francis College of Engineering, or a computer science major, you may apply for either a 3-month or 6-month co-op position in a professional workplace outside the university.
