All Opportunities

Welcome to the UMass Boston scholarship system!

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply to scholarships, you must first sign in with your WISER log-in credentials to access the campus login portal.

What to Expect:

  • You will be presented with the general application after logging in.
  • After completing you general scholarship application, you may be presented with other scholarships opportunities that need additional information to determine your eligibility.
  • After submitting each of these steps, you can see your application status on your dashboard. If your status is not listed as “submitted,” you have not fully completed your application.
  • If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will receive an email notification to your UMB email account.

Each scholarship opportunity has its own individual criteria and guidelines. Some scholarships will only be open to students in certain majors, with certain cumulative GPAs, or if they meet a number of other factors. All of our scholarship opportunities are very competitive and funding is limited so not all qualified students will be selected for an award.
