ACADEMIC WORKS

All your scholarships. All in one place.

  • The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) has implemented an exciting and convenient new system, Academic Works, which automatically matches you with the scholarships you’re eligible for.
  • These include scholarships offered through SBS, Commonwealth Honors College, CICS, the Alumni Association, financial aid, and your major department. By spring 2019, ALL scholarships offered at UMass will be in the Academic Works Platform.
  • Simply enroll in Academic Works, fill out the general scholarship application and the application for your college, and watch as all the scholarships you’re qualified for are populated on your screen.
