Committee on General Scholarships Harvard University

Welcome to the Committee on General Scholarships

The Committee on General Scholarships administers special financial aid, scholarship, and fellowship programs that support Harvard University graduate and undergraduate students. We are one possible source of financial assistance at Harvard. 

The financial aid offices at Harvard's eleven individual schools administer most of the financial aid opportunities available for Harvard students. Therefore, all students should pursue financial aid options directly through the school in which they plan to be enrolled.

The Committee on General Scholarships administers a broad range of programs and the eligibility requirements and application procedures vary widely. Please begin by choosing an area of interest, right. We hope this site will help you identify opportunities and we welcome your questions about our programs.

Please note: The Committee on General Scholarships is located at:

14 Story Street, 3rd Floor

Cambridge, MA 02138
