Scholarship Info


The University of Massachusetts (UMass) is offering five $5,000 scholarships to provide recognition of and financial assistance to five outstanding students. These scholarships will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year.

These scholarships are available due to President William M. Bulger's 1996-2003 tenure as leader of UMass where he pursued the dual mission of excellence and educational opportunity.  High-profile donors and corporations contributed generously to his mission through the William M. Bulger scholarship funds.  Over one million dollars were raised in honor of his 70th birthday in 2004.  President Bulger directed these gifts to UMass for the purpose of providing financial assistance to motivated students who are serious about their education.
