Are You Barnard Bound?
Thank you for our interest in Barnard Bound! At this time, we are still finalizing information regarding our Fall programming, including Barnard Bound. Check back on this page for more information throughout the summer! If you have questions, please reach out to our office at email@example.com.
What is Barnard Bound?
Barnard Bound provides a taste of both Barnard College and New York City for promising young women who will be high school seniors in Fall 2020 and self-identify as students of color (which we define as individuals from Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latina, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian, bi- and multi-racial backgrounds), especially those students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit. Due to limited funding, Barnard Bound is only open to students currently residing within the continental U.S.
In past years during this two day overnight program, students have the opportunity to experience the cultural diversity of New York City and Morningside Heights, while getting a full perspective of life as a potential Barnard student. Participants have stayed overnight on campus with a current student host within the residence halls. They also participate in workshops, panels and classes while getting a feel for student life and meeting current Barnard students, faculty and administrators. Finally, students learn important details about our admissions and financial aid processes.
How do students apply to Barnard Bound?
Students must complete the online Barnard Bound Student Application. More information about Barnard Bound 2020 and how to apply will be coming soon.
In addition to the application, the student's guidance counselor or mentor at a college access organization must submit the Barnard Bound Adviser Recommendation to nominate a student. We appreciate the insight that your counselor or mentor is able to provide about your potential experience during Barnard Bound.
Finally, a transcript must be sent with the nomination form (this may be an unofficial transcript). We will also require final junior year grades. This can be sent via a final report card.
