In 1978, Donald and Charlotte MacJannet donated The Priory (Le Prieure) located in Talloires, France to Tufts University and The Tufts University European Center (TUEC) was then established in 1979. Over the last 30 years, nearly 2,000 students have come to France to participate in a summer undergraduate studies program hosted by the Tufts European Center. For three decades, The MacJannet Foundation has provided scholarships and financial aid to deserving students to help them participate in The Tufts European Center’s summer studies program. The MacJannet Scholars program has enabled over 200 students from diverse backgrounds to experience first hand the MacJannet ideals of cultural exchange, experiential learning and global citizenship. Glowing testimonials from MacJannet Scholars over the years, point to the transformational power of this experience and how it has enriched countless lives.
