According to the Harvard website, "Grant funds are awarded on a two-tier system based on need. The Tier 1 grant is based solely on the student's financial information. In order to be considered for more substantial Tier 2 grant, students must provide parental information."
I don't have access to my father's information and am a little worried about the possibility of not receiving as much aid from schools. I was wondering if anyone knows what the difference between a Tier 1 and a Tier 2 grant is.
