Bard seeks to assist qualified students who might not be able to attend a private college because of the cost. In recent years, approximately two-thirds of all Bard students have received some form of assistance from the College and/or federal, state, and private programs. Domestic and international students are also eligible, based on need, for Bard scholarships and loans. The average Bard Scholarship is $37,906 as of the 2017-2018 academic year. Bard has a need-aware admission policy.
