2021 Voices of Tufts Diversity Experience


Tufts University Admissions is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Voices of Tufts Diversity Experience! Voices is an opportunity designed to introduce current high school juniors to diversity and community at Tufts University.

About Tufts
They are seeking nominations for juniors who would be a good fit for Tufts. Tufts is a student-centered research university located less than five miles from downtown Boston, MA. Students study across Tufts’ School of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering, and School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA at Tufts). Tufts University meets 100% of the demonstrated financial need of all admitted students, regardless of citizenship status.

What is Voices?
The Voices program will take place in October 2021. While no decision has been made on whether the event will be held in-person or virtually, Tufts is committed to holding Voices this fall. The program will expose current high school juniors to the academic and social experience at Tufts through mock classes, student panels, and conversations with representatives from their identity-based resource centers. There is no cost to participate in Voices and all applicants to the program will have their Tufts application fees waived.

Who could be nominated? 
While Voices has traditionally attracted participants from underrepresented backgrounds – including but not limited to students of color; first generation college-bound students; LGBTQ students; students from low-income backgrounds; and students from rural communities – any student interested in learning about diversity at Tufts is welcome to apply. Most importantly, they seek to invite students with strong academic records who are kind, collaborative, civically-engaged, and interested in creating a more inclusive world.
