Beneficiary Aid Form


The Beneficiary Aid Program provides additional financial assistance to Harvard College students receiving Harvard scholarship who are faced with medical or dental emergency term-time costs that will prove to be an extreme financial hardship. This funding can help to cover a portion of these unforeseeable, non-recurring expenses, with coverage depending on your level of financial need.


The application deadline for costs incurred during the 2023-2024 school year is June 1, 2024.
