Donate to FIP

donateWe are completely committed to making FIP accessible to any interested international student, regardless of their financial background. This is why FIP does not have a program fee. We hope that the friends and families of FIP can help us continue to sustain and enhance this program for years to come. We have so much that we want to do, and yet each year we face very strict budgetary constraints.

All donated funds go directly into the program. This includes food, housing, program logistics, and more. Donations do not fund any salaries or stipends. We are incredibly appreciative of your support. For those of you interested in giving to FIP, the options are listed below. Thank you for your generosity.



You may donate online through Harvard Alumni Gifts. The process should take less than 10 minutes. If you have any problems or questions about donating, please contact Dr. Anouska Bhattacharyya, Director of First-Year International Program, at
