We are committed to ensuring all admitted students have the opportunity to attend Harvard, regardless of the economic obstacles they have encountered. We launched the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI) in 2004 to enhance this effort and to raise awareness of college affordability for students interested in all kinds of colleges and universities.

Our student coordinators are eager to discuss student life, the basics of financial aid policy, and the specifics of the Harvard application. Contact HFAI to hear about their experiences at Harvard.
