Policies and eligibility
- Financial aid is a scholarship award. It is not a loan and it does not have to be paid back.
- Only SSP students who are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible.
- Awards are primarily for tuition, and most scholarships cover only a portion of tuition. You are encouraged to seek other sources of funding in addition to applying for SSP financial aid.
- Awards vary and depend on financial need, academic level (preference is given to students who will graduate in 2015), academic merit, status (residential, commuting, or online), and availability of funds.
- To be eligible for financial aid, you must complete your SSP application and financial aid application by March 24.
- Late applications for financial aid are not accepted.
- You must apply for financial aid online through online services. We do not accept financial aid application materials sent via fax or e-mail.
- Note that the SSP policy on financial aid differs from the Harvard College policy.
