Program Fees

You'll find details about a program’s fee on its homepage. For most programs, this fee covers tuition, housing, meals and curricular materials. This is not the case for all programs, 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.

Funding

Tuition Assistance HKS provides a limited amount of tuition assistance, which may partially fund the program fee. To be considered for tuition assistance, please notify the program director after being admitted to a program.
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.
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.
Funding for U.S. service members and veterans If you're eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill 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.
