2020-2021 Baruch College Scholarship Application: CLOSED
Deadline: March 7, 2021
Baruch College has many scholarships available based on a variety of criteria including academic achievement, financial need, program of study, extracurricular activities and community service for degree seeking students only. Please note that Baruch offers very few scholarships that are awarded based only on merit. As an NCAA Division III institution, Baruch College prohibits athletically related financial aid for all institutional-administered scholarships. Our scholarships are made available through the college funds and generous support of private donors who have helped promote the college's continuing scholastic excellence. Most Baruch scholarships require the completion of the 2020-21 FAFSA* (fafsa.ed.gov – Federal Code 007273) and unmet need; undergraduate New York State residents must also complete the TAP application; Baruch’s TAP code is 1409. Scholarships are available for the fall and spring term only. Baruch, Dean’s, and Macaulay scholars do not need to submit a scholarship application since their selection process occurs upon admission.
For graduate assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships, student should contact the prospective graduate program that they will attend.
If selected, scholarship recipients may be awarded a partial to full tuition scholarship for the academic year. Scholarships may or may not be renewable from year to year, as they are dependent on financial availability. The college reserves the right to reduce or rescind the scholarship or award if financial circumstances dictate, or if the student no longer meets eligibility requirements. Scholarships cannot not be deferred. The recipient(s) must use the scholarship and/or award in the year it is given. Once the decision has been rendered, applicants will be notified by e-mail. The reasons for committee decisions cannot be given and the decisions are final. Recipients may be required to submit a letter of acknowledgment to the donor and instructions will be sent to student’s campus email.
*Undocumented and International students are not required and should not complete the FAFSA.
EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIP RESOURCES
All degree seeking students, regardless of citizenship status, should also seek external scholarships from reliable search engines such as the ones discussed in this article. Undocumented students can complete the New York State DREAM Act Application. In addition, they can download the free DACA Scholars application from iTunes.
Be extremely careful with sites requesting payment or your Social Security Number.
