We have a number of programs for international students planning to study at Harvard graduate and professional schools. Please review the information below and the corresponding links to learn more about these funding opportunities.

Scholarships for Colombian Students

Scholarships for Colombian students support graduate students at Harvard University who are citizens of Colombia. Two funds make these scholarships possible, one for all Colombian students (Fondo Colombia-Harvard Fund) and one for faculty, graduates, and students from Universidad de los Andes (Harvard-Los Andes Fund).

Candidates are evaluated on the basis of merit and financial need and must be deemed eligible for financial aid by the Harvard schools they plan to attend. Candidates must apply for consideration before entering the U.S. and prior to the start of their Harvard programs.

Candidates must apply to and be accepted to an academic program at the university independently from this fellowship application. Admission to the University does not guarantee a fellowship award.

Recipients are expected to return to Colombia to contribute to the country following the completion of their degree studies.

Deadline: March 1, 2018

The guidelines and online application for academic year 2018-2019 will be posted sometime in January 2018 or before.

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact the Committee on General Scholarships.
