Scholarships and Fellowships

Tuck scholarship awards are made possible through the generosity of Tuck alumni, corporations, and nonprofit foundations. Recipients will be notified at the time of their offer of admission. Students who do not receive scholarships in their first year should not expect to receive scholarship in their second year.

All applicants who wish to be considered for scholarship must complete an Application for Tuck School of Business Scholarships by the specified deadlines.

Need- and Merit-Based Scholarships

Tuck offers scholarships to U.S. and international students based on a combination of need and merit. Tuck scholarships range anywhere from $5,000 to full tuition. In assessing merit, Tuck considers a variety of factors, including exceptional academic performance, leadership, professional accomplishments, service, and ability to contribute to the diversity of the Tuck community. Scholarships are automatically renewed in the second year, provided that a satisfactory academic record is maintained throughout the first year at Tuck. Students will be notified of the donor of their award after matriculation.

Consortium for Graduate Study in Management Fellowship

As a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, Tuck awards scholarships to students selected via the Consortium. All Consortium applicants must also complete the Application for Tuck School of Business Scholarships.

Forté Foundation

Tuck is a proud member of the Forté Foundation, a consortium of educational institutions, businesses, and nonprofit groups formed to increase the number of women business leaders and to support their careers through events, networking, and other career resources. Each year the Tuck Admissions Committee selects several exceptional women candidates as Forté Fellows who receive a Tuck scholarship in addition to the other Forté Fellow benefits as outlined on their website. The Application for Tuck School of Business Scholarships is required for consideration, and applicants should include their interest in the Forté Fellowship as part of their biographical essay.

Center for Business & Society

Working in close partnership with the Tuck Career Development Office, the Center for Business & Society (formerly the Allwin Initiative for Corporate Citizenship) supports students interested in careers with a social and environmental focus. Students can gain experience, whether they wish to secure a position in a socially responsible company, work for a foundation, or apply business knowledge to the public or nonprofit sectors. Two programs developed by the center provide financial support to students.

The Tuck Nonprofit and Public Sector Internship Fund (Tuck GIVES) provides financial support to students planning to enter nonprofit or public sector summer internships. Tuck GIVES has supported 148 interns to work in 85 different organizations around the world.
 
The Tuck Nonprofit Fellowship program provides financial assistance, mentoring, and networking support to graduating Tuck students who take a position working with a qualifying nonprofit or public sector organization. It can be compared to a loan forgiveness program. Recipients have used it to pay off loans as well as provide needed cash to transition to their new job.  

Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The percent of eligibility is service related. In addition to tuition and fees, the GI Bill provides a housing allowance and a book and supplies allowance. Some changes were made to the bill through the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Improvement Act of 2010. Most of the changes took effect on August 1, 2011.

The Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program allows institutions to enter into a voluntary agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the annual VA cap of $19,198.31 at private institutions for individuals eligible for the 100% payment tier. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Tuck participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) without limitation on the number of veterans enrolled and at a maximum level of $18,000 in funding for the 2014-15 academic year. We are proud to support our veterans, whose strong leadership, sense of responsibility and commitment are qualities that are important to Tuck.
