Baruch College has many undergraduate scholarships for degree-seeking/currently enrolled fall/spring students only; these have a variety of criteria such as academic achievement, financial need, program of study, extracurricular activities, and/or community service. Merit-based only scholarships are rarely available. Baruch College is an NCAA Division III institution which prohibits athletically related financial aid for all institutional-administered scholarships. Our scholarships are made available through the college funds and generous donors. Most Baruch scholarships require the completion of the 2023-24 FAFSA* (studentaid.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. Applications are reviewed after the published deadline. Our scholarship awarding process is competitive and submitting an application and meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee an award. Baruch, Dean’s, and Macaulay scholars do not need to submit a scholarship application since their selection process occurs upon admission.
Scholarship award amounts vary and may not necessarily be renewable from year to year. The College reserves the right to reduce or rescind awards if financial circumstances dictate, or if the student no longer meets eligibility requirements. Scholarships cannot not be deferred. Once the decision has been rendered, selected applicants will be notified by e-mail. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed. Recipients may be required to submit a letter of acknowledgment to the donor and instructions will be sent to student’s campus email.
Graduate Students should contact their respective academic program advisor or department chair for information on scholarships, assistantships, and fellowships.
External scholarship resources are available to all degree seeking students regardless of citizenship status. Undocumented students should complete the New York State DREAM Act Application, and the THEDREAM.US application. Be extremely careful with sites requesting payment or your Social Security Number.
*Undocumented and International students are not required and should not complete the FAFSA.
