Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Riverhawk Scholarship Portal. The priority application period is February 8 to April 2 for scholarships available for the next academic year. There are a few scholarships available after April 2, however, to be considered for the MOST scholarships, apply within the priority application period. The majority of the award decisions are emailed mid-late summer to the selected recipients.

To be considered for 2021-2022 scholarships you MUST meet ALL the following criteria:

  • MUST be a current UML student in a degree seeking program (non-degree and certificate students are not eligible)
  • MUST be enrolled in at least 1 class for the 2021 spring term
  • Scholarships will be awarded in the next academic year therefore you MUST be returning to UML for upcoming the 2021-2022 academic year to receive consideration
  • Note to Incoming Students: The vast majority of the endowments require an established academic record at UMass Lowell. There will be a limited amount of scholarships you may apply for beginning in June after you have submitted your enrollment deposit and we have confirmed your intent to enroll.

You do NOT apply to each scholarship individually. Log in with your UML credentials, complete the General Application and the system will match you to scholarships. The scholarships are open to all students who meet the main scholarship criteria. If the scholarship needs additional information after the General Application is submitted, you will be prompted by the system.

For detailed information on how to use this system, download our Frequently Asked Questions .

Reminder! Your completed General Application will be archived and removed from the system in November each year. You must complete a new application during the priority application period each year.
