The University of Vermont is doing an excellent job of enrolling and educating outstanding students, but we are determined to do even better.The University’s effort to attract and retain the very best students in Vermont and throughout the nation requires increasing the amount of financial assistance we can offer qualified applicants.
However, students attending private colleges receive signicantly more financial aid than UVM undergraduates.Narrowing this gap will make the University of Vermont more competitive across the entire spectrum of American higher education and will help us augment the size of UVM’s student body while sustaining and building its quality.
In addition to funding undergraduate scholarships, support of fellowships for graduate students is critical to our mission as a research university.
