🐘 Looking to make a difference in the lives of today's Jumbos?

πŸ’²πŸ’Ή Eager to support students interested in a finance career who cannot come to Tufts without scholarship support?β€―  

πŸŽπŸ’Έ Giving to the TFN Young Alumni Scholarship is the answer to both questions. And when you give in March, your gift is doubled. πŸ’² β†’πŸ’²πŸ’²

What is the TFN Young Alumni Scholarship?

A one-year term scholarship ($25,000) for a student interested in a career in finance, to be awarded in the '24-'25 school year. All undergraduate financial aid is awarded on a need basis and Tufts is committed to meeting 100% of the demonstrated need of every student it admits.

How will we raise the money for the TFN Young Alumni Scholarship?

With your support, and gifts from Jumbos who recently graduated with a big boost from Julie (Kim) Kwon, E98 and TFN Advisory Committee Member, Lawrence Kwon, A99! 

For the month of March, Julie and Larry are offering a dollar-for-dollar match up to $12,500. This means you can literally double your impact!

Why is this scholarship specifically for students pursuing finance?

TFN young alumni understand the importance of striving for their workplaces to reflect the composition of society. A gift to this campaign helps break down barriers for a young Jumbo who might have thought pursuing a career in finance was out of reach.

Meet Your Scholar
You did it! πŸŽ‰

Thanks to you, we reached our goal of creating a $25,000 one-year term scholarship for a deserving Tufts student in the '24-'25 school year!

Special kudos to the 60+ people who contributed to the campaign; the 26 TFN young alumni volunteers who spread the word to their networks; and Julie (Kim) Kwon, E98 and TFN Advisory Committee Member Lawrence Kwon, A99 who generously matched all gifts to reach this milestone.

We look forward to sharing an update on next year’s scholarship recipient, whose time at Tufts will undoubtedly be impacted for the better because of you.
