For undergraduate students, Tufts University is proud to meet 100% of the full demonstrated need of all admitted students, for their entire Tufts career. Each year, Tufts awards more than $86 million in need-based financial aid. We are serious about making sure that all admitted students can afford a Tufts education.
All of our financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need; for international students, this is determined through the analysis of family resources on the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE. If enrolling at Tufts, international students are also required to submit the International Student Certification of Finances document to the International Center.
Students must indicate their plans to apply for financial aid when they apply for admission, as assistance is not available to students who do not receive aid upon admittance. More detailed information on applying for financial aid as an international student is available on the Tufts Undergraduate Admissions site.
We offer generous merit-based scholarships for high achieving graduate student applicants. Other scholarships, grants (including the Montague Travel Grant), and Teaching Assistantships are available for enrolled students. In addition, graduates of the MFA program are eligible for our Post-Graduate Teaching Fellowship and graduates of all SMFA at Tufts programs are eligible for the Traveling Fellowship, which supports the exploration and research that are critical in an artist’s career.
Additional information regarding tuition & fees and financial aid for graduate study is available on the Tufts Graduate site.
