Financial Aid

The Harvard School of Dental Medicine is committed to helping students identify the resources they need to obtain a Harvard Dental education. The School considers the financing of a student’s education to be a commitment involving the student, his or her family—including parents and spouse—and the School. Financial aid at HSDM is awarded on the basis of determined financial need and the availability of funds. Typically, more than 75 percent of HSDM students obtain financial assistance through federal, private, and school resources. Aid may be in the form of a scholarship or grant, loans, and/or student employment. The Office of Financial Aid is available to assist you and your family as you proceed through the admissions process and continuing through your graduation.
