Scholarships are a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. There are federal and private scholarships, and we recommend you search extensively for any scholarships you may qualify for.
All students admitted to Baruch College are automatically evaluated for full and partial merit-based scholarships. There are no additional applications for merit scholarships other than the Macaulay Honors College application.
Grants are funds from the federal and state government that do not need to be repaid. You can apply for federal and state grants by submitting your FAFSA. The need demonstrated on the FAFSA will determine the amount of state and federal grants a student receives.
