You Can Afford Harvard

How Aid Works

Your financial circumstances have never kept you from great achievement, and they will not keep you from Harvard. Applying for financial aid will not hinder your application, regardless of your citizenship. We provide the support you need to get here by working closely with you to understand your family’s individual circumstances.

Calculate Your Net Price

Use our Net Price Calculator to get an idea of how much Harvard will really cost you. In less than five minutes, you can get an estimate of your financial aid package and expected family contribution. We think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Apply for Aid

All our scholarships are based on demonstrated financial need. We take all aspects of your family’s financial circumstances into account when determining aid to make sure you get the level of support you need. Get started:
