Harvard Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI)
We have a long tradition of removing economic barriers for students who want to attend Harvard. Announced in 2004, The Harvard Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI) is a continuation of this tradition and greatly expands financial aid to families who earn less than $80,000. And, if your family earns less than $65,000 per year, your parents pay nothing for you to attend Harvard. It is simply our effort to make sure you and your family know you can afford to attend Harvard.
There is no special application or qualification necessaryâjust apply for financial aid when you apply for admission. Applying for financial aid does not hinder your chances for admission.
