Office of Financial Aid

The role of the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) is to assist students and applicants with financing their education at the Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health. The staff is committed to providing students and applicants with the information needed to make informed decisions about financing their Harvard Chan School education.

Students are encouraged to explore all avenues of funding opportunities. In addition to reviewing internal scholarship opportunities within the school and university, OFA manages and updates our external resource database. Our OFA Fund Finder not only allows you to search for external opportunities but is interactive allowing students, faculty and staff to submit outside resources of which they are aware.

Academic departments and programs are the primary source of grant support at the Harvard Chan School. OFA works with academic departments and programs in coordinating funding opportunities.

OFA determines eligibility for and administration of federal and private student loan programs, which make up the majority of aid available. As such, debt management counseling is considered an important service in OFA.

The OFA staff is available throughout the year to discuss all aspects of loan debt management, student billing, refund processing, and other areas as requested.
