Academic Enrichment 31%

Haverford students learn from and work with teacher-scholars in an intellectually rich and open environment, immersed in an ever-evolving process of learning and discovery. The curriculum is in spirited dialogue with other components of the "campus classroom," including the three academic centers and the libraries. These resources—along with every academic department—receive Annual Fund support.

Financial Aid 21%

We are committed to making Haverford affordable for all academically qualified students so that those most able to benefit from and contribute to our community may attend, regardless of their ability to pay. The Annual Fund helps underwrite the College's need-blind admission and no-loan financial aid policies. Fifty percent of students received College grant aid in 2011-2012.
