Top Fulbright Producer

"Our students' exceptional success with the Fulbright Program is, above all, testament to their scholarly accomplishment and social vision, expressing their commitment as global citizens to learning across national and cultural borders, As young Fulbright Scholars they will serve as superb ambassadors both for Haverford and for the nation, just as they have already distinguished themselves as leaders within our own community both in and beyond the classroom." —Haverford College President Kim Benston

International Students

An increasing number of international students are being drawn to Haverford by the promise of intellectual exploration, academic rigor, and close-knit community. Once here, they must also contend with unfamiliar food and strange American social customs, and a climate that may be way outside their comfort zone. A robust support program for students from abroad eases intercultural adjustment.

Financial Aid

The average financial aid grant awarded to Haverford students is $40,014, and more than 55% of students receive some form of financial aid from the College. On National Philanthropy Day (Nov. 15), students were invited to write thank you notes to alumni who have contributed to the Annual Fund this year.
