The Fletcher School is pleased to offer several additional scholarship opportunities to enrolled students. The following scholarships are awarded annually, and may provide funding in addition to institutional scholarship aid. The Fletcher School will send enrolled students annual application announcements for the following, each of which requires a separate application:
DACOR Bacon House Foundation Fellowship
Diplomatic and Consular Officers, Retired (DACOR), an association of US Foreign Service Officers in Washington, DC, awards the Bacon House Foundation Fellowship annually to a Fletcher student, in an amount up to $10,000 ($5,000 per semester). The award is made primarily on the basis of academic excellence, and requires an expressed interest in an international relations field such as language, conflict resolution, international economics, or environmental science.
The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund
The Will of Dolores Zohrab Liebmann created a perpetual charitable trust designated as “The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund” for the purpose of funding advanced education and graduate study grants. Each award covers the cost of tuition and an $18,000 annual stipend. Tufts University nominates three qualified candidates for this Fellowship; The Fletcher School may put forward two candidates for the Tufts University selection committee to consider.
