Apply for the Fletcher Scholarship at the Tufts University by January 10, 2019

Fletcher Scholarships

The Fletcher School awards over $7 million in scholarship aid annually. Fletcher Scholarships are for tuition only and are awarded on the basis of merit and need to both U.S. citizens/permanent residents and non-U.S. citizens. Financial need is determined through an evaluation of an applicant’s resources, which includes income and asset information. Merit is assessed through the application for admission.

The Fletcher School is committed to providing scholarship assistance to as many students as possible; however, our resources are limited. While over ninety percent of the candidates requesting scholarship aid receive at least partial funding, Fletcher students need to formulate a financial plan that does not rely solely on Fletcher scholarship aid. Fletcher scholarships typically range from $5,000 per academic year up to full tuition. The middle 50 percent of scholarships awarded are in the $8,000 to $18,000 range.

Please note that Fletcher offers very few full tuition scholarships, and assistance to support living expenses is not available.

All applicants seeking scholarship aid must submit a complete Fletcher Scholarship Application (included with the Application for Admission) by January 10. By completing the scholarship application, applicants are eligible for all Fletcher scholarships. All scholarship recipients (including Early Notification candidates) are notified at the Regular Decision deadline. Scholarships are renewable in the second year for those students who maintain full-time status and remain in good academic standing. In the event that a student's tuition charges are reduced, the Fletcher Scholarship will be pro-rated accordingly.

Tuition scholarships are granted on the basis of need and merit to PhD students in the coursework phase of their degree. Some stipend funding may also be available and, as scholarships are not tied to research or teaching responsibilities, students may arrange their own preferred work during the academic year.  Scholarships are also available for the Enrollment Fee paid by PhD students who have completed their coursework. Applicants for admission to the PhD program should complete the scholarship application form on the online application.
