Explore GSAS Events
GSAS is a leading institution of graduate study, dedicated to identifying and attracting the most promising students to form a dynamic and diverse community and training them as intellectual leaders who embody Harvard’s tradition of excellence. We offer PhDs and select master’s degrees in programs that connect students with all parts of the University, additionally providing opportunities for non-degree study through visiting and outreach programs.
We’re proud of our diverse community representing many identities, including but not limited to abilities, belief systems, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, races, socioeconomic statuses, sexes, and sexual orientations. At GSAS, we understand that diversity is important to sustaining Harvard’s excellence as an academic institution, and we strive to create an inclusive environment where all students can thrive and grow academically and personally. All members of the GSAS community play an integral role in nurturing a welcoming community, and our GSAS Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDIB) works in partnership with faculty, staff, and students towards this goal.
Our aim is to attract the most qualified candidates and make Harvard financially accessible to all degree students. PhD students receive a financial support package that includes a stipend and tuition grants for at least five years. Whether you are a PhD student or studying for a master’s degree, the dedicated staff of the Office of Financial Aid can help you develop a plan that enables you to secure the resources necessary to pursue your graduate education.
