Financial Aid

HBS offers generous need-based fellowships for admitted MBA students.  Approximately 65% of HBS MBA students receive some form of financial assistance to finance their education.  For 2014-2015 Academic Year, the school has awarded over $1.77MM to US military veterans attending the MBA program. As part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, HBS contributes up to $12,000 for each eligible service member, matched dollar-for-dollar by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.  If you believe you are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon program and / or the GI Bill, make sure you apply for your benefits early.

Harvard Business School waives the $250 MBA program application fee for all active duty military applicants.
