Proceeds will benefit the Salute to Service Scholarship Fund being established to honor and support the talents and aspirations of select students in pursuing and realizing their public service and civic engagement goals.

UMass Amherst has a distinguished history of educating for civic engagement and preparing committed and engaged graduates who are ready to change our world.  Through outreach, the university  extends the resources of this campus to individuals and groups within the Commonwealth and beyond, and enlists this institution in helping solve society’s pressing problems.

Our programs have been recognized nationally – by President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll every year since 2006 and by the Princeton Review’s “Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.”  We’ve also been named a “community-engaged university” by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement for Teaching. 

The Salute to Service Scholarship promotes the participation and success of students in extending their skill and talent through contributions toward the greater good of society. With this fund, UMass Amherst’s emphasis on public service and commitment to positive and productive change will continue to propel our students forward.
