European Center scholarships for Tufts in Talloires, Tufts in Annecy, and Tufts Summit students are funded by alumni and friends of the European Center who generously support the Center’s mission. Scholarship awards are based on several criteria including financial need, academic merit, class year, civic-mindedness, and the overall quality of the scholarship application. The number of scholarship awards varies from year to year.

Scholarship awards are for up to half the total cost of the program fee. The European Center will announce all financial awards before the program’s commitment deposit is due.

Scholarships offered through the Tufts European Center are separate from Financial Aid. Scholarship applications and awards are managed by the European Center and include awards for named scholarships. Scholarship award recipients will be notified of their specific named funding source once they have accepted their scholarship award.


  • Any Tufts University student registering for the Tufts in Talloires or Tufts in Annecy programs is eligible to apply to the European Center for a scholarship.
  • Qualified high school students applying to the Tufts Summit program are eligible to apply to the European Center for a scholarship.


Tufts in Talloires Named Scholarships
