International Students

Affordable, Wherever You are From

We value student diversity, which is why we bring promising students from around the world to Harvard—regardless of financial circumstances.

As an international student, we know you face additional costs to attend Harvard. We will help you cover the gap between your family’s resources and the cost of attendance.

By completing an aid application for foreign students, you help us assess your financial need and ensure we provide the right level of support for you.

Prospective students

You have two options for submitting an aid application: online or paper. If the fee associated with the online application in any way creates a hardship, please use the paper submission. Your choice will not affect your award.

Current students
