Scholarship and Loan Repayment Programs

Need-based scholarships are available for medical students attending Tufts University School of Medicine.  All students who have applied for institutional assistance will be assessed annually to determine individual eligibility.  Scholarships are awarded to those with the most financial need, and range in value.  Most scholarships are equivalent to 25% of tuition, however, some may be valued as much as 75% of tuition.  However, no student can receive an institutional scholarship that exceeds the value of 100% tuition from any and all sources.  Externally funded scholarships are considered when determining the total scholarship eligibility for institutional funding.  Students are encouraged to disclose outside scholarship awards as early as possible to avoid having their institutional scholarship reduced later in the year.  All scholarship awards are need-based and are never guaranteed for renewal in future years.  Students are required to reapply for aid annually and those displaying similar levels of need are likely to receive similar aid packages in future years. 

In addition, medical students may take advantage of loan repayment programs through a variety of sources. Tufts University has also created a new Loan Repayment Assistance Program, available to graduates of any Tufts program who are pursuing careers in public service.
