Every year, the UMass Amherst Alumni Association presents major awards and over $90,000 in scholarships to outstanding students.

Proceeds from the UMass Amherst license plate support these scholarships and awards, as well as programs, workshops and networking events that add value to UMass Amherst degrees.

A non-profit organization, the Alumni Association represents and serves a network of more than 235,000 alumni worldwide, and is an active and powerful community that generates positive outcomes for the university.

Through campus traditions, alumni networks, professional development programs and volunteer opportunities, the Alumni Association creates an engaging environment that enriches the student and alumni experience.

The UMass Amherst mascot Sam the Minuteman is an integral part of the UMass license plate design, giving it patriotic school spirit. Sam is based on the Minuteman Statue in Lexington, MA, site of the first engagement of the American Revolution.
