In an effort to help offset financial hardships many are experiencing now, UMass Lowell is allocating half a million dollars in education scholarships for new and continuing undergraduate students who enroll for the 2020 summer semester.

To continue its support of social distancing practices, all UMass Lowell summer courses will be offered online or through a virtual classroom model.

“Everyone has been affected by the sudden global health and economic changes caused by COVID-19 and we hope these scholarships will help minimize the impact for students pursing education at UMass Lowell,” said Steven Tello, vice provost for graduate, online and professional studies.

Tello said these new UML summer scholarships are being offered in addition to traditional financial-aid programs such as federal grants and student loans. He also encouraged students to apply for the new aid soon by visiting UMass Lowell’s Summer Financial Aid page, as early applications will be given priority consideration.

“UMass Lowell is nationally recognized for quality with more than 20 years of experience in online education,” Tello said. “While there are a lot of new unknowns in our daily lives, UMass Lowell’s online and virtual classroom courses provide an affordable opportunity for students to move their education forward.”
