Mr. James G. Birmingham and Mrs. Carolyn Birmingham

This scholarship was established by James G. and Carolyn Birmingham. Even though the Birminghams have had no direct connection with the university, they have a strong commitment to public education and felt that UMass Amherst, as the flagship campus of the Commonwealth’s university system, would be the appropriate place for the administration of this scholarship in order to reach diverse and deserving students. James and Carolyn are Trustees of the James G. & Carolyn Birmingham Foundation and the Piecework Partners Foundation, which provides disadvantaged youth with social services, extracurricular activities and mentors in order to encourage them to stay in school. The couple resides in Lincoln, MA.

Please address thank you notes to:
Mrs. Birmingham
