Credit for Academic Learning Integrated with Volunteer Experience (ALIVE)

Through this program, the University of Vermont offers college credit to members of AmeriCorps*VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America). VISTA members participating in ALIVE can earn up to nine undergraduate or graduate credits in a variety of disciplines for structured reflection of their service experience. VISTA scholars will attend workshops, create portfolios and work with faculty advisors during residency weekends on campus that will not detract from their time serving in communities. UVM will annually award six scholarships to Vermont VISTA scholars who participate in ALIVE.
