Sponsorship Opportunities

Banneker & Aztlán's success largely relies on the generosity and goodwill of our community at Harvard University and the Center for Astrophysics (CfA) and on individuals affiliated with the program. We are fortunate to have people eager to offer their time, energy, and money.

The information below is a breakdown of cost-per-student, which should give a better idea of how we use our funds. We hope it will be helpful to students of the program seeking to bring their own funding and to anyone wishing to sponsor a student's membership in the program.
