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 at least half of the total cost of attendance.
Please note: It is Bard's policy not to offer admission to any international student who is unable to demonstrate sufficient funding.
Bard Foreign Scholarships
Nonrepayable grants are awarded to non-U.S. citizens on the basis of financial need and academic achievement and promise. Typically, Bard Foreign Scholarships range from $10,000 to $30,000 annually for full-time enrollment. Many other Bard College financial aid programs are available to all applicants, including international students.
