Dear GSAS Students,

I am thrilled to announce that GSAS is expanding the Emergency Support Initiative. This third phase will provide grants to active, upper-year PhD students who would otherwise pay the facilities fee (i.e. tuition for advanced doctoral students) or the active file fee and Harvard University Student Health Plan (HUSHP) fees out of pocket for fall 2020.

If you meet the criteria, please complete a brief survey to activate funding.

Your graduate program administrator will work with the GSAS Office of Financial Aid to confirm eligibility and disburse funding.

I hope that this is welcome news and that this support will help you with planning for the fall.

With all best wishes,

Emma Dench

Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
