One of the wonderful things about Harvard is that it meets full demonstrated need for international students as well as domestic applicants. If Harvard accepts you, you will be provided financial aid that meets 100% of your demonstrated need.

If you want to be considered for financial aid, you'll need to submit the CSS profile and possibly some supplementary forms, and your parents will have to send some relevant financial documents like their tax returns to confirm their - and your - financial status.

Unfortunately, this works only for financial need. If your parents cannot afford for you to attend Harvard, Harvard will make up the difference. If Harvard deems they can afford it, and they're just not willing to support you in this way financially, you'll be in a more difficult spot. Harvard only give money on a need-based basis and doesn't give any merit-based scholarships. You'll have to look into external scholarships and possibly consider loans if this is the situation.
