Program Fees

You'll find details about a program’s fee on its homepage. Depending on the format of the program (on campus, online, or blended), this fee can include tuition, housing, meals, and curricular materials. The fee structure is tailored to the executive program, so please check each program's page carefully.

Payment Terms

Once accepted to a program, you'll receive an invoice for payment, which is due upon receipt of the invoice. Payment can be made by credit card, check, or bank wire transfer. You'll receive specific payment instructions once admitted.


Fellowships HKS works with various organizations to offer fellowships to certain programs. Please check the program webpages to see if fellowship opportunities are available. An application is usually required.
Funding for U.S. service members and veterans If you're eligible for the Post-9/11 GI BillTM benefit, you should enter "Post-9/11 GI Bill" in the application under the "Who will be the financial sponsor of your participation?" question. Upon receipt of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE), the Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education Finance Office will determine whether your benefits may be applied to our Executive Education programs.
Please Note: GI benefits may only be applied to tuition and curricular materials. The participant is responsible for the remaining program fee which includes housing and meals.
Outside Scholarships and Fellowships Financial assistance for training is often available from outside organizations. Inquiries should be made directly to these organizations. HKS does not facilitate this process.
