Harvard Medical School Scholarships

Save

On average, the cost of attending medical school can rise above $150,000 in total debt. Students who wish to earn scholarships to reduce those costs can explore the school's financial aid office, search external sources for scholarships and apply to merit-based or need-based fellowships. Harvard Medical School provides many resources for students who are looking for financial aid.

Harvard Medical School - Financial Aid Office

  • Harvard Medical School (HMS) offers generous financial aid in the form of loans, scholarships, grants, work study jobs and other opportunities. As part of the application process, students should contact the HMS financial aid office as soon as they are sure they will apply to the school. Students need to fill out a separate application for financial aid. Prospective students can feel comfortable knowing that their ability to pay for HMS has no bearing in their acceptance. Also, the office only awards financial aid and scholarships based on financial need, not based on merit.

Scholarship Search Engines

  • Students who wish to search for additional scholarships can use financial aid website links provided by Harvard Medical School. For example, the website provides a link to a Free Scholarship Search Engine called FinAid. Here, prospective students can search FastWeb for more than 1.5 million scholarships worth approximately $3.4 billion. Many scholarships depend on a student's personal background, such as state of residence, cultural background, personal interests and scholastic achievement. Students can explore the search engine to determine which scholarships they qualify for and wish to apply to.
