For domestic students to be fully considered for all financial assistance, including merit fellowships, we strongly encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the school code E00215. FAFSAs can be completed beginning January 1, 2013 and should be completed prior to the HKS financial aid application deadline.
If you have not filed your taxes, you should complete the FAFSA using estimated information and correct the data once you have filed.
