All Lowe Fund loan applicants will be notified by e-mail of the review committee’s decision within
ten business days of receipt of their applications. Once a loan is approved and necessary paperwork is
completed for check-processing, recipients must allow an additional ten business days to receive their
checks. Be advised to plan travel arrangements accordingly.

All Lowe Fund loan recipients are required to provide a written evaluation of their funded career
exploration experiences within a month of their return to campus.

The donors hope that Lowe Fund loan recipients will repay their loans when their financial
circumstances permit, in order to support even more undergraduates in the future. Checks should be
made payable to “Harvard University” and mailed to the Lowe Fund at the above address.
