Tuition Exchange to Attend Participating Institutions
We are pleased to announce the College’s renewed association with Tuition Exchange
. 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.
The 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 $30,500 for 2011-12 ($31,000 for 2012-13). 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.
