Abenaki Outreach Program

How to Apply

In the Spring, families of incoming ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders will receive a letter from Jeff Benay, Director Indian Education Program, who invites their respective children an opportunity to apply for the Summer Happening Program initiative. An essay must be included that asks the student why s/he is interested in partaking of this experience. The sign-up is on a first come, first served basis as UVM can only accept 16 students into this incredibly exciting college experience where students will learn about life on a college campus, meet with UVM Professors, and tour downtown Burlington in an effort to familiarize Abenaki high school students with the greater Burlington landscape.

If this sounds like something you or your child may be interested in learning more about, please contact Jeff Benay at (802) 868-4033 so that you may talk about this once-in-a lifetime college offering.
