Building Robust & Inclusive Democracy

Apply to the Tisch Scholars Program

Thank you for your interest in the Tisch Scholars Program! Current first-years and sophomores who will be enrolled at Tufts are eligible to apply, though the Scholars program is designed to have the strongest impact on students who participate for the full three years. Beginning in the Fall term, first-year Scholars take a yearlong Fieldwork Seminar while engaging in community service or research projects with a local partner organization. As they advance through the program in subsequent years, continuing Scholars strengthen their leadership skills and build capacity in local communities and on campus by taking on projects of greater complexity and responsibility. Third-year Scholars will develop a culminating capstone project.

Application Process

To apply, students must:

  • Fill out an online application, which asks for biographical information, answer two short essay questions, and upload a short resume.

For more information, please visit the Tisch Scholars program page.

Please note that your application will not be considered submitted until all three steps above are completed. Tisch College staff and current Tisch Scholars will review applications and schedule interviews with selected candidates. Final decisions will be made by late March.
