Students from Vermont have a number of choices when considering Vermont scholarships. Some of these scholarships are geared solely towards Vermont residents while other scholarships are open to any student who attends a college or university in Vermont. The best way for students to determine whether they are eligible for any federal or state funding is to complete a FAFSA. In addition, students may want to inquire at the financial aid office of the university the plan to attend since there are many institution specific awards. As a final step, students may want to check with the academic department that they plan to study in since many departments maintain their own budgets and manage some scholarships. If you are looking for Vermont scholarships, check out the list below:
