Graduate Scholarship Nominations

Two graduate programs–at Tufts and Claremont McKenna–offer generous financial packages to Davidson students who are nominated by the department and admitted to the programs. 

The Fletcher School at Tufts university

The Fletcher School Master of International Business (MIB) program is a 2-year interdisciplinary program designed like a dual MBA/international affairs degree in order to give students a nuanced understanding of business in the global context.

The Economics Department may nominate up to two seniors annually for this program. Tufts University will award a minimum annual scholarship of $7,500 and up to full tuition remission to students nominated by the department and admitted to the program.

Students nominees will receive special admission consideration and pre-application counseling and mentoring via direct contact with the dean of Fletcher's business program and the Institute for Business in the Global Context, the senior Fletcher admissions representative, and the MIB program office.

A student admitted through this pathway will be named an international business and liberal arts scholar.

To be considered for nomination, please submit a completed application form (PDF) to the Economics Department office (C3257) by noon on Thursday, Nov. 3.
