Financial Aid

To apply for graduate financial aid at UMass Amherst you only need to complete one form – the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly called FAFSAThe Graduate Financial Aid office will use the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for federal, state and university aid programs.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are available for students accepted into the program. General information about assistantships can be obtained by visiting the Graduate Assistantship Office website.

Most Graduate Assistantships carry a waiver of tuition, a waiver of many of the fees, and a stipend of $5,200 per semester for a 10-hour-per-week position. On average, 90% of MS graduate students receive at least one semester of graduate assistantship funding, and all MBA/MS in Sport Management graduate students are guaranteed at least one full year of graduate assistantship funding.

When invited for an admissions interview, more information will be provided regarding the selection process for Assistantships. It is recommended, however, that a student plan and prepare to attend the University of Massachusetts without a graduate assistantship.

Graduate applicants are also strongly advised to apply for other national fellowships-Ford Foundation, Javits Fellows, NSF Fellowships, and those provided by national professional organizations. The University participates in Project 1000 (National Hispanic name exchange), GEM (for those interested in science and engineering), and the National Physical Science Consortium, and strongly encourages McNair Scholars to apply. For further information, contact the OGSRR at the above address.

The McCormack-McLendon Scholarship--a partnership with The McLendon Foundation--provides tuition-free enrollment to one student each academic year in either the MS in Sport Management or the MBA/MS in Sport Management dual degree programs. For more information, please visit the McCormack-McLendon Scholarship page.
