Scholarships and Fellowships

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

Need- and Merit-Based Scholarships

Tuck offers scholarships to U.S., permanent residents and international students based on a combination of need and merit.  Tuck scholarships range anywhere from $5,000 to full tuition.  There is no separate application process for Tuck scholarships.  Tuck’s admissions and financial aid offices will review the application materials submitted by candidates for admission.  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 named scholarship award and donor information after matriculation.  These named scholarships replace the Tuck scholarship already received.

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. Applicants should email Tuck.Financial.Aid@dartmouth.edu to request consideration for a Forté Fellowship.

Center for Business & Society

Working in close partnership with the Tuck Career Development Office, the Center for Business & Society supports students interested in careers with a social and environmental focus. Students can gain personal direction and experience as preparation, 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 administered by the Center provide financial support to students.

The Tuck Nonprofit and Public Sector Internship Fund (Tuck GIVES) provides financial support to students in a qualified  nonprofit or public sector summer internships. Since 2001, the Tuck GIVES program has supported 159  interns working 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 full-time position working for 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 $20,235.02 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.
