Educating future nutrition leaders is at the heart of the Friedman School’s mission. The school has made great progress over the past decade in increasing access to financial aid, with scholarships being a top Brighter World campaign priority. However, available financial aid doesn’t meet the needs of our student body.

The Scholarship Challenge provides donors an opportunity to support Friedman School students and invest in the future of the nutrition field:
- The donor’s portion of the gift is 60%, while Tufts provides 40% toward all endowed scholarships of $100,000+ focused on either doctoral students or those that build the diversity of our doctoral and/or masters student body.
- Gifts may be pledged for up to five years to new or existing Friedman School endowed scholarships.
- Leadership gifts to the Annual Fund must also be pledged.
- This match will be available until all matching funds are committed.
In ways we never could have anticipated, 2020 has opened our eyes to inequities in nutrition, the food system, and health. The COVID-19 global pandemic has proven that, now more than ever, we need more exceptional leaders in the nutrition field.
Now is the time to ensure that our current students can continue their studies, and to redouble our efforts to attract the most talented applicants.
Your gift is the key to changing students’ lives—and the world.
