Policy Regarding Outside Scholarships
Haverford will use a portion of any outside scholarships received to reduce the summer work contribution and/or work-study requirement. Please visit Haverford's website here for the full explanation of Haverford's policy on outside scholarships.

Policy on Health Insurance
Haverford requires all students to have health insurance, either through their parents or another plan. If a student is not covered by a parental plan, Haverford will make arrangements with the student to provide coverage.

Policy on Travel Allowance
For students living outside of a 300-mile radius of the College, Haverford adds a travel allowance to the estimate of the total cost of attendance, and in turn increases your amount of Haverford College grants. This money is applied to the student's college bill and is not issued as a refund. Travel allowances outside the U.S. are not provided.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
All students receiving financial aid from Haverford - including Match scholars - must reapply for aid every year. As long as a Match scholar continues to qualify for need-based financial aid, the terms of the Match Scholarship package will not change. 

Other Details
The expected summer work contribution for the 2nd – 4th years is $2,400; the expected work-study contribution for the 2nd – 4th years is $2,300.

The required fees above include an orientation fee that is only applied in a student's first year.

Students are expected to contribute 25% of their personal savings toward college expenses. This contribution will decrease the amount of the Haverford grant dollar for dollar.
