Access to Higher Education

Tufts believes tuition should not be a barrier to education, and so strives to attract students from all socioeconomic backgrounds with generous financial aid. Because an intellectually vibrant community is inherently diverse and inclusive, the university will continue to expand scholarship resources and to give students the support they need to succeed.

  • The Center for the Humanities at Tufts received a grant from the Mellon Foundation to perform Mellon Sawyer Seminars for 2016—2017, which will focus on Comparative Global Humanities.
Lee Nordan
Trustee John Bello is making sure the legacy of his late friend Lee Nordan lives on, together with Lee’s widow, Helen. “It seems logical to make this annual award to a student who has chosen the same career path as Lee, and to help them get their start in medicine.”
George Kramer
George Kramer’s parents helped him succeed at Cummings School, and in his career in veterinary cardiology. After they passed away, he decided to thank them with a scholarship in their name.
Lisa and Steve Lebovitz
Over the past two decades, Lisa and Steve Lebovitz have contributed to the Tufts Annual Fund, Tufts Hillel, and Tisch College. Now Lisa is extending her support to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. “It’s contagious with Tufts. The more you learn and do, the more you want to do.”
