Scholarship Info

Description

The Jack M. Wilson Presidential Scholarship Fund was established in 2011 to provide special recognition to University of Massachusetts (UMass) undergraduate and graduate students who demonstrate academic excellence and a passion for public service. Six (6) scholarships will be awarded for the 2016-2017 academic year.

During President Wilson’s 2003-2011 tenure as leader of UMass, he was a strong advocate for research and innovation, understanding that robust research universities are critical to the state’s knowledge-based economy. Under his leadership, UMass took major steps forward in all key areas: from enrollment, to research funding, to endowment.

The Jack M. Wilson Presidential Scholarship Fund commemorates President Wilson’s strong record of accomplishment and creates scholarship opportunities for deserving students.
