HEOP and BOP scholarships provide Bard College with the funds to help meet the cost of a scholar's education. Qualifying students are also eligible for state, federal, work-study, and other institutional financial aid awards. New York State residents are required to apply for the state’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and the federal Pell Grant.
