Scholarships at UMass Dartmouth

2014-2015 Scholarship Applications Process


Individual scholarship descriptions contain specific eligibility criteria.

Review all scholarships to take advantage of each opportunity available to you:

  • General scholarships
  • Scholarships available within your college of study
  • UMass System Presidential Scholarships

How to apply

Submission deadline for all scholarships is March 1 (unless otherwise noted). Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. It is your responsibility to make sure you have followed the necessary steps for each scholarship submission.

Scholarship awarding for the 2014-2015 academic year begins during the spring 2014 semester and will continue throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. Only students that are selected for a scholarship will be notified. Scholarship applications will remain on file for consideration for the entire academic year. Students who receive a scholarship will be asked to submit a thank you letter to the donor for their gift to you.

Helpful hints

  • Read each scholarship to determine what you may be eligible for.
  • Scholarships are defined as need-based, merit-based or both.
  • Demonstrated financial need is determined by a completed FAFSA.
  • A 2014-2015 FAFSA completed by March 1 will automatically allow students to be considered for most need-based scholarships. Some need-based scholarships have a separate application and will be listed with the scholarship.
    Be sure to review all scholarships.
  • Merit-based scholarships are determined by the requirements of each individual scholarship.
  • Application for merit-based scholarships is by a Merit-based General Scholarship & Eligibility application (one application will allow students to be considered for multiple scholarships); a separate application; or an application process through your college of study.
  • For scholarships that require both merit and demonstrated financial need, a completed FAFSA will determine financial need.
