Scholarships, Fellowships, and Study Abroad
Baruch students often receive scholarships and fellowships to help them finance their study abroad experiences. Each of these scholarships or fellowships has its own requirements about which students are eligible to apply, the minimum duration of eligible study abroad programs, and in some cases restrict eligibility to certain geographical regions or countries. Moreover, each scholarship or fellowship will set deadlines for the submission of applications. You are strongly encouraged to begin researching scholarships and fellowships as early as possible, and to apply for any scholarship or fellowship for which you are eligible.
The information below is not exhaustive, but it will provide you with the basic information you need about the scholarships or fellowships to which Baruch students most often apply.
The best place to begin your research is to contact Ms. Valeria (Valerie) Hrimnak (née Hymas), the Deputy Director of Office of National and Prestigious Fellowships Advising. This Office has compiled a database of scholarships and fellowships you can browse. In addition, Valerie can advise you on how to craft the strongest application for the specific scholarship or fellowship.
Some nationally competitive scholarships (in particular the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship and the Freeman Asia Scholarship), require certification both by a Study Abroad Advisor and by a Financial Aid Advisor. Please follow these instructions for obtaining these certifications.
Study Abroad Advisor
The Director of Study Abroad, Dr. Richard Mitten, serves as the certifying Study Abroad Advisor for all applications that require such a certification. If requested, please enter Dr. Mitten’s name and contact email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: The Director of Study Abroad will not certify a scholarship application until the student has submitted a completed Baruch Application to Study Abroad for the program listed on their application for the scholarship. If you have any questions about this, please contact the Director of Study Abroad.
Financial Aid Advisor
To obtain certification of your financial aid status for a national application, you must follow this procedure:
- Submit a completed Consortium Agreement/Cost of Attendance Form via email as a PDF attachment to the Director of Study Abroad, Dr. Richard Mitten (email@example.com). Please note: You may NOT sign the Consortium Agreement/Cost of Attendance Form using a digital signature. Instead, you will need to complete the form, print it, sign the paper copy by hand, scan the signed form, and send the saved scanned PDF via email. If you have difficulty fulfilling this requirement, you can use the printing and scanning facilities in the Study Abroad Office. Please contact the Study Abroad Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange an appointment for you to stop by.
- The Director of Study Abroad will verify the information on your Consortium Agreement/Cost of Attendance Form and will forward it with his signature to the Financial Aid Advisor designated by the Office of Financial Aid Services. You will be copied on this email.
Please contact the Director of Study Abroad as early as possible in the process, if you have any questions.
