Voices of Tufts Diversity Experience

If you want to be nominated for Tufts paid for fly-in experience, please notify your counselor by June 1st.

We write to remind you that Tufts Admissions is still accepting nominations for the fall 2023 Voices of Tufts Diversity Experience. Voices is our signature fly-in program, and we encourage you to nominate any students who you feel would be a good fit for Tufts. This year's program will take place in October, and there is no cost for students to attend.

You are welcome to nominate any rising senior who attends high school in the U.S. While Voices has traditionally attracted participants from underrepresented backgrounds – including but not limited to students of color, first generation college-bound students, LGBTQIA+ students, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, and students from rural communities – any student interested in learning about diversity on the Tufts campus is welcome to apply. We seek primarily to invite students who are kind, collaborative, civically-engaged, and interested in creating a more inclusive world.
