The Baruch Scholars Program admits students entering into their first-year of college and supplies generous scholarships for in-state and out-of-state students. Designed to deliver supportive advisement and extensive academic opportunities, the program mitigates the financial burdens of college in order to help students focus on pursing their intellectual interests and career goals. Baruch Scholars participate in a wide range of activities, from studying abroad and conducting independent research to engaging the New York Community through civic responsibility and central issues. Furthermore, program advisors keep students informed about opportunities for professional development and additional scholarships.

In-state students will receive a full-tuition scholarship over a four-year period, while amounts for out-of-state students may vary. The program does not cover tuition for summer semesters. In order to graduate with honors from the program, students must also meet a number of general requirements, including enrollment as a full-time student and the completion of a minimum of 10 honor courses. Scholars must also commit to at least 15 hours of community service and attend one cultural event per semester.
