With many students unable to afford college, the University of Massachusetts just made it easier. With a $158 million supplemental budget approved by the Legislature and signed by the Governor, $10.9 million will be distributed to the University of Massachusetts with $7 million of that dedicated for student scholarships.
“It is this funding that truly represents the commitment that the state leaders have towards UMass and the University’s overall pursuit of quality and excellence,” explains University President, Marty Meehan as he praised the state legislative for their support of the college system.
Named as one of the World’s Most Innovative Universities, UMass further raises its visibility with these additional funds for student scholarships.
Enrolling more than 56,000 undergrads at its campuses in Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell, UMass provides an opportunity for all students to receive a meaningful education, and money allows more individuals to pay for their college career, making a true impact on the Commonwealth’s future.
