International students attending Bard College are eligible for financial assistance. Prospective international students who wish to be considered for financial aid must submit the International Student Application for Financial Aid. See below to download the required forms. Students who submit the required financial aid forms are automatically considered for all Bard College grants or scholarships for which they may be eligible. The International Student Application for Financial Aid must be completed each academic year for continuation of scholarship.
Bard's financial aid budget is limited. Bard makes every effort to meet the needs of its accepted and financially eligible students while staying within budget parameters. Generally, Bard will admit an academically eligible international student who can demonstrate sufficient funding to cover room, board and travel costs.
Please note: It is Bard's policy not to offer admission to any international student who is unable to demonstrate sufficient funding.
