Tuition Exchange to Attend Participating Institutions
We are pleased
to announce the College’s renewed association with Tuition
. Tuition Exchange was chartered in 1954 and is a national
scholarship exchange program for institutions of higher education. The College
rejoined Tuition Exchange in 1998 after a number of years absence.
All full-time employees with one year or more of full-time service will be
eligible to participate in the Tuition Exchange Program.
allows dependent children of eligible employees at Dickinson, an opportunity to
earn a scholarship at numerous participating colleges and universities
nationwide. It also allows dependents of staff at the other membership
institutions an opportunity to earn a scholarship here at Dickinson. Both
incoming and outgoing scholarships are based on the membership institution’s
regular admissions processes. Eligibility alone does not guarantee student
acceptance into an institution or a scholarship award. Awards are competitive
and not automatic. Unlike our existing tuition assistance program, our award for
Tuition Exchange is the set rate amount of $31,500 for 2013-14 ($32,500 for
2014-15). Most participating institutions provide full tuition scholarships.
Tuition Exchange participating schools are required to maintain a balance
between the number of students it sends out and the number it brings in.
To apply for a Tuition Exchange scholarship, it is advised that you
notify Bernadette Pham (Dickinson’s Tuition Exchange Liaison Officer) twelve
months before your dependent child plans to enroll. The Tuition Exchange
Application will then be prepared, authorized, and submitted to the Liaison
Officer at all institutions to which your child is applying. If your daughter or
son is planning to apply to schools for next fall, please contact Bernadette
immediately so we may review the program in more detail.
