Scholarships offered by the Tufts European Center are separate from Financial Aid and are funded by generous gifts from friends and alumni.
Any Tufts University student who is registering for the Tufts in Talloires and/or Tufts in Annecy programs is eligible to apply for a European Center Scholarship.
Qualified high school students applying to the Tufts Summit program are eligible to apply for a European Center Scholarship
Scholarship awards are based on a number of criteria including financial need, academic merit, class year, civic mindedness, and the overall quality of the scholarship application.
Scholarships are funded by alumni and friends of the European Center who generously support the Center’s mission.
All scholarship awards are distributed by the European Center from a general fund as well as from several specific funding sources:
The MacJannet Foundation whose support honors Donald and Charlotte MacJannet, an American couple who made the Tufts Summer Programs in Talloires possible by donating the building and grounds which now comprise Tufts' campus in the French Alps
The Michael B. Slone (A89) Endowed Scholarship for Talloires established by classmates and friends to honor his life and spirit for adventure
The Nathan and Shirley Brodsky Scholarship for Tufts in Talloires, awarded annually to a first-generation student who has had limited travel experience and who demonstrates financial need
The European Center awards go up to half the total cost of the program fee.
The European Center will make all financial awards before the program’ commitment deposit is due. After financial awards have been distributed, scholarship recipients will matched with their specific funding source and notified.
Additional Scholarship Funds Description and Eligibility
European Center has two additional unique scholarship opportunities for Tufts University students.
These scholarships are available only to those students who have already applied for and received a scholarship from the European Center to participate in the Tufts in Talloires Program. These scholarships are intended to help students manage the balance of program and travel costs.
NOTE: These scholarship opportunities require an additional application form.
The Hollister Fellows Program
The Hollister Fellows program has been created to help students use their Tufts in Talloires experiences to deepen and enrich their understanding of what it means to be an active citizen in today’s world. Our hope is that in doing so, the Hollister Fellows will expand upon their commitment to social responsibility, global citizenship, and cross-cultural understanding, values that were passed from Donald and Charlotte MacJannet, donors of the European Center’s building in France to Tufts University, to Professor Rob Hollister, their former student, the founding Dean of the Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, and the creator of this Fellowship program.
Students who have requested financial support to attend the Tufts in Talloires program are eligible to apply.
