Tufts alumni who are now employees of the university are not eligible for the Advantage Scholarships if they receive benefits through Tufts tuition remission program.

Bridge Partner Scholarships

Tufts School of Engineering has partnered with select colleges to offer an MS Bridge program that makes it easier and more affordable to earn a master’s degree in a wide variety of Tufts engineering programs.

Yellow Ribbon Scholarships

The current Yellow Ribbon Scholarship award at Tufts is $5,000 annually for students enrolled in the Friedman School, the Fletcher School, the School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering. You can find additional information about the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website

Financial Aid & Loans

In addition to scholarships, financing options typically include personal resources, educational loans and company tuition reimbursement. 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.     

Corporate Reimbursement

Many students are eligible to have their tuition covered by their company tuition reimbursement programs. We encourage students to reach out to their Human Resources department and manager to understand if there is an available benefit, what the requirements are, any caps for the amount reimbursed, and the deadlines for submitting paperwork.  Our team will work with students to help them get the necessary documentation in terms of billing and grades to submit to their employers. 

 

A note for On-Campus MSEM students:

The lock-step nature of the On-Campus MSEM core curriculum results in students having set tuition charges at specific points during Academic Year 1. During those times, if your employer’s tuition assistance policy requires you to submit grades before receiving reimbursement, Tufts Gordon Institute will allow you to defer the amount of tuition that is to be paid by your employer for up to 30 days after we issue your grades for that semester. After placing your deposit to the On-Campus MSEM program, you will receive additional information about how to apply for tuition deferral, including eligibility criteria and deadlines.

Student Loans

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 www.fafsa.ed.gov, 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 studentservices@ase.tufts.edu

Student Employment

Various part-time jobs are available at Tufts University under regular student employment budgets and, for those who qualify, the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program. Students with jobs typically work between 8-12 hours a week both on and off campus. International students with an F-1 visa may work up to 20 hours a week on campus. Students typically earn $8.00–$15.00 per hour depending on job responsibilities.
