Applying for Financial Aid

Since both the MSEM and MSIM are professional master’s programs, Tufts University’s Gordon Institute does not offer any research or teaching assistantships to students.

Tufts Gordon Institute strives to keep tuition costs at a reasonable level and, therefore, we offer limited tuition scholarships based on merit. Most students pay their own tuition cost. If you would like to be considered for a tuition scholarship, please fill out the section for financial aid on the online application form. We strongly encourage applicants who want to be considered for a scholarship to complete their application for admission no later than the Round 2, March 15 application deadline. Please note that Tufts Plus Program applicants may be eligible for tuition scholarships. For additional information contact

Low-interest Federal Direct Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, and Federal Work Study programs are administered by Tufts Student Financial Services which maintains information on all federal programs as well as alternative forms of financing such as non-need based loans. Federal aid is available for U.S. citizens and permanent residents only. To apply for Federal Direct loans and/or Federal Work Study, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The form is available online at, and the Tufts University Institution code is 002219.

Students who will finance all or part of the tuition costs can obtain information on student loan programs through the Tufts University Office of Financial Aid website, the Dowling Student Services Center at Tufts University at 617-627-2000 or by email at
