Office of Scholar Development


The Office of Scholar Development was created to help students attain opportunities for independent research and sponsored scholarship. With help from the StAAR Center and the Scholarship Committee, we assist students in the sometimes complicated application process every step of the way, from deciding which scholarship is the right fit to revising application essays.

The research we sponsor and the students we nominate for nationally competitive awards are a way that we tell the world who we are as an institution, and a way we reaffirm Tufts’ commitment to inclusion, critical inquiry, and social justice.

Our office is dedicated to scholarship and teaching in service of the struggle toward equity, safety, and justice for all people and our planet. We reaffirm our commitment to stand in solidarity with those targeted by forces of repression. We actively denounce homophobia, misogyny, racism, transphobia, xenophobia, ablism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and all other forms of hatred and bigotry.

The Office of Scholar Development holds weekly drop-in hours where we answer questions and give application feedback. Hours are Mondays 4-5 PM in the Tower Café, and Wednesdays 12-1 PM at the Center for STEM Diversity (20 Professors Row).
