Earlier today we passed our first "50 donor" milestone -- unlocking the first $1,000 donation from the Tufts Alumni Council! And we're less than 20 donors from the second $1,000 bonus. Thank you to everyone who already contributed. Now is the time to encourage your Tufts friends to make a gift of their own so we can get the full $8,000 bonus gift from the Alumni Council.
As the Boston Globe recently wrote, some first generation students have had a hard time adjusting to life at Tufts.
“You have culture shock,” said Mario Delgado, a 25-year-old physics major from Charlotte, N.C., who came to the United States from Ecuador when he was 8. “There’s kind of a difference between you and everybody else.”
This scholarship can help make things a little easier, so please help.
Remember - every gift is Jumbo!
