The Emerald Rose McKenzie '52 Scholarship recognizes students looking to hone existing skills or develop budding interests later in life and provides eligible candidates with a full tuition scholarship to Bard College, where they can complete their Bachelor's degree.
The RCP program requires that students have at least 28 credits from a previous higher education program that can be transferred to Bard College.
If you are interested in applying to Bard's RCP program with the possibility of receiving the Emerald Rose McKenzie '52 scholarship (among other forms of need-based aid), please complete a Transfer Common Application by March 1, 2021.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Greg Armbruster, Director of Transfer Admission, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Cornerstone of Bard College's Mission
A cornerstone of Bard College's mission is a commitment to the transformative nature of a liberal arts education and the role of the liberally educated student in a democratic society. This power to transform extends to students beyond traditional college age and, for this reason, the College has historically been committed to its programs that serve this population, specifically the Returning to College Program (RCP).
