Which scholarships am I eligible for?
First-Year and Transfer BA Applicants
(except for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree)
Academy Year Applicants
Project Year Applicants
Bard College Berlin does not offer scholarships for Project Year applicants at this time.
An offer of scholarship/financial aid, unless otherwise stated, is made on the assumption that the applicant will be a full-time student and will incur full-time tuition, room and board charges at Bard College Berlin. If these assumptions are wrong, the applicant should expect a revision of the scholarship/financial aid offer.
Financial Aid is awarded on an annual basis and applicants need to reapply each year. Students who enter Bard College Berlin with a financial aid award can expect that the same level of aid will be renewed in the subsequent years, provided that the student re-applies for aid each year and continues to demonstrate a similar level of financial need. The deadline for renewal of applications is April 1 of each year.
