Financial Aid Makes Haverford More Accessible for These Students
"Haverford's financial aid generosity has dumbfounded me as I am from Myanmar—a place where the government uses a very small percent of the country's budget for education." - Peco Myint '15
The following are just a few of the 50% of students who received financial aid from the College—in the form of grants, not loans.
Alanna Matteson ’15 is an international studies major and environmental studies minor. She works for the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship (CPGC) and has participated in CPGC-sponsored internships. On campus, she is involved with the Haverford Garden Initiative, Haverford Fair Trade Initiative, and Ehaus.
Peco Myint ’15 says his academic interests mainly lie in technology and management. He has enjoyed the community provided through the Customs Program, as well as the various organizations dedicated to the international student community such as International Students Association and the South Asian Society.
Kelsey Ryan ’14 chose English and linguistics as a double major because of her fascination with storytelling as an art form and as a method of communication. Outside the classroom, she is most passionate about the Mainliners a cappella group, traveling (studied abroad in Belgium and England), and sound engineering. She is a co-head of BLAST Student Tech Crew and works as a student assistant in the Office of Study Abroad.
Shannon Smith ’15 is an English major and anthropology minor who is interested in everything from politics to art history. Writing for College Communications and The Clerk student newspaper has sparked her interest in journalism, marketing, publishing, or any career path that would allow for continued curiosity in a real-world context.
Ben Weissman '14 is an English major and music minor, particularly interested in studying where sound meets literature. He is an enthusiastic member of the Bi-Co Chamber Singers, the Bi-Co Chorale, and the Humtones, one of Haverford's oldest a cappella groups.
