Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Riverhawk Scholarship Portal. The site is open February 1, 2019 and closes on April 5, 2019 for the 2019-20 awarding cycle. Scholarship decisions are sent to students over the summer.

To be considered for 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 2019 spring term
  • Scholarships will be awarded in the next academic year therefore you MUST be returning to UML for upcoming the 2019-2020 academic year to receive consideration
  • Note to Incoming Students: The vast majority of the endowments require an established academic record at UMass Lowell. Incoming/New students cannot apply through this system. Please contact the Academic Chair of the program you are accepted into for further details on availability for new students.

You do NOT have to apply to each of the scholarships individually. You complete the General Application and the system will match you to scholarships. If the scholarship needs additional information after the General Application is completed, you will be prompted.

For detailed information on how to use this system, download our Frequently Asked Questions or contact scholarships@uml.edu

Reminder! Your completed General Application will be archived and removed from the system in November. You must complete a new Application at the beginning of each spring semester.

Search Tip: Click on the “Show Filters” button in top right. Use “scopes” to search for specific criteria such as ‘graduate student eligible’ or your specific major department. You can also use the keyword search for very broad searches such as ‘community service’, ‘international’ or ‘leadership’.
