Absolutely! Harvard is need blind (which means they don't consider your financial need when they decide whether or not to accept you), and they 100% of demonstrated financial need. They are even fully need blind for international students!

If you are from a low-income background, you can be confident that Harvard will completely or at least mostly cover your cost of attendance.
