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.
