Resource of the Week: Academic Works – the UMass Scholarship Platform

Everyone could use extra help paying for college and all the expenses involved with being a student. AcademicWorks is just the resource to help support your financial needs! UMass scholarships of all kinds are housed in AcademicWorks. Whether you are looking for funding to help pay tuition, or to fund you as you complete an unpaid internship, engage in your research interests, or study abroad, this is the place. Whether you are a student with significant financial need; whether you are the first in your family to go to college, you are a student who works at the Daily Collegian, or an out-of-state student interested in criminal justice, and more, there are scholarships to support you.

Get a jump on this before the semester gears up. Log in to AcademicWorks with your UMass log in info, and fill out your profile. Once you have done that step you will start receiving info on scholarships that you qualify for. And keep an eye on the SBS Pathways website, newsletters, and social media for a heads up on specific scholarships.

We’re lucky to have a lot of very generous SBS alumni donors who want to help you be successful. Don’t leave money on the table when you could take it to the bank! Fill out your AcademicWorks profile today.
