In order to be fully considered for any financial assistance, including all merit fellowships, applicants are strongly encouraged to complete a financial assistance application by the stated deadlines, as funds are limited. The Harvard Kennedy School recommends applicants print this page as they begin the financial assistance application process in order to help them through the required steps.
Financial aid decisions are made at the time of admissions therefore no renewal HKS financial aid application is necessary. Domestic students receiving federal loans and work-study will need to file a renewal FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Students who will not be enrolled at HKS for any portion of the upcoming academic year should notify their financial aid counselor.
In order to complete a financial assistance application, applicants must submit their application for admission. Applicants will receive an email from Student Financial Services, containing their unique MYFAID Student Login ID. Upon receipt of this email, you will be able to complete the HKS financial assistance application through MYFAID.
If a student is applying only for loans, the deadlines above do not apply.
The deadline for the Zuckerman Fellowship is earlier than the deadline indicated above. Please visit the fellowship website for more information.
All prospective PhD program applicants should contact the Doctoral Programs Office for further financial assistance information.
