Lola Aiken is a long-term supporter of The University of Vermont and The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. With her husband, the late George D. Aiken, Governor of Vermont (1937-1940) and U.S. Senator (1940-1974), she has been a tireless champion for the environment and education. Lola serves on The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources Board of Advisors, is a member of George D. Aiken Lecture Series Board of Directors and a sponsor of the Lola Aiken Award in Natural Resources. No one enjoys young people more than Lola. The Lola Aiken Scholars Program is a fitting tribute to this spunky Vermonter and fine friend of the School.
In 2004, the University of Vermont's Honors College was instituted. Academically high achieving students are invited to become part of the Honors College when they are admitted to the University. For students already at UVM, students may apply for admission in the spring of their first year. For more information on the Honors College, please go to their website at www.uvm.edu/honorscollege.
