We recognize that attending graduate school involves a significant financial investment. The admissions team and our dedicated associate director of administration are here to answer your scholarship, tuition and billing questions.
Tufts Gordon Institute is pleased to offer the following scholarships to qualified applicants to both the M.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Innovation and Management programs.
Tufts Gordon Institute awards tuition scholarships to M.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Innovation Management students to both U.S. citizens/permanent residents and non-U.S. citizens. Scholarships typically range from $5,000 – $15,000 off the total tuition. Recipients will be notified of the amount of their award at the time of acceptance. These scholarships are one-time, non-renewable awards with the funds split across the terms of the student’s enrollment in the program.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit. Merit is assessed through the application for admission. To be considered for a tuition scholarship, applicants must fill out the financial aid section of the online application. We strongly encourage applicants who want to be considered for a Gordon Institute scholarship to complete their application for admission along with the financial aid application by the Round 2, March 15 application deadline.
Tufts alumni and students who apply for the M.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Innovation and Management programs are guaranteed generous tuition scholarships ranging from $5,000-$10,000. Recipients will be notified of the amount of their award at the time of acceptance. These scholarships are one-time, non-renewable awards with the funds split evenly across the terms of the student’s enrollment in the program.
Tufts University transcripts that are submitted as part of the online application for admission will serve as confirmation of an applicant’s eligibility for a Tufts Alumni Advantage Scholarship. No separate application is required.
Tufts Alumni Advantage scholarships cannot be used in conjunction with any other Tufts University institutional aid or discount. If a student is offered other grant aid from the university, he or she will only receive the scholarship of higher value. Tufts employees who are also alumni of the University are not eligible for the Tufts Alumni Advantage Scholarship if they receive benefits through Tufts tuition remission program
A streamlined application process is also offered to all Tufts alumni who are candidates for the M.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Innovation and Management programs.
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.
Tufts Gordon Institute issues its own customized billing statements for students in the M.S. in Engineering Management program in order to accommodate the requirements of employers’ tuition reimbursement processes.
If your employer’s tuition assistance policy requires you to submit grades prior to 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. Two-Year MSEM students are enrolled over parts of three calendar years enabling students receiving tuition reimbursement to obtain three years of a company’s annual tuition reimbursement cap. Three-Year MSEM students are enrolled over parts of four calendar years enabling students receiving tuition reimbursement to obtain four years of a company’s annual tuition reimbursement cap.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
