Financial Aid and Scholarships
All applicants to the M.S. in Economic Theory and Policy program are considered for scholarships and financial aid. Aid and scholarships are awarded on the basis of both merit and need.
US Citizens and Permanent ResidentsUS citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for financial aid and scholarships by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to Bard College. FAFSA forms are not available to students applying for Early Decision (the forms are only made available beginning in January for the subsequent Fall session). Early Decision applications will need to submit the College Scholarship Service (CSS) / Financial Aid PROFILE, which is provided by the College Board to Bard College.
Students applying for Regular Decision need not complete the CSS profile. However, to receive federal aid, all students must submit the FAFSA forms when they become available. Since all aid and scholarships are awarded on the basis of need and merit, applicants who do not submit the required forms will not be considered.
