Once I have submitted my Harvard Scholarship application, what would I need to do next?
If you have submitted an application for a scholarship through Harvard, you will need to provide the UWA Scholarships office with relevant documentation to be verified including your approved School - External Enrolment Application Form. This can be submitted via Email Us or in hard copy to Student Central.

How will I know if I have been successful for the scholarship reduction?
You will be notified of the outcome by the UWA Scholarships office via email. UWA will advise Harvard of the outcome to apply the fee reduction.

The Fee Reduction Scholarship applies to the Harvard Business School Credential of Readiness (HBX CORe) program. More information is available at Harvard Business School Course.
