Green & Gold Scholarship
Terms and Conditions
The University of Vermont Green & Gold Scholarship is an
academic merit scholarship awarded to the academically strongest rising
high school senior from every Vermont public secondary school. The
scholarship fund was established through a gift made by the family of
the late Genevieve Patrick. Described below are the rights and
responsibilities associated with this scholarship.
In order to retain your scholarship, you must remain a full-time student (defined as enrollment in twelve or more credits per semester). Enrolling at less than full-time will result in withdrawal of your scholarship for that semester. Reinstatement for future semesters will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. You must also maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of a 2.8 in your first year and a 3.0 in subsequent years, evaluated at the end of each academic year. Scholarships will be withdrawn for students who have not met the scholarship requirements. Academic achievement leading to a cumulative GPA above a 3.0 in the future will result in scholarship reinstatement for the following academic year. Your scholarship is a revocable award from the University.
Length of Scholarship
You may receive this scholarship for a total of eight semesters or until you graduate, whichever comes first.
Gift Aid Tolerance
Your scholarship award may be reduced or cancelled if total gift aid (including grants, scholarships, employer tuition benefits, and VA educational benefits) exceeds the total cost of attendance as defined by the University.
Scholarship Award Value
As a Green & Gold Scholarship recipient, you are entitled to a full-tuition scholarship. If you receive tuition remission, your Green and Gold Scholarship will be set at an amount of:
- $4,500 per year if you were admitted to the University for the Fall 2012 semester.
- $5,000 per year if you were admitted to the University for the Fall 2013 or Fall 2014 semester.
- $6,000 per year if you were admitted to the University for the Fall 2015 semester.

Relationship to Need-Based Financial Aid
As a merit scholarship, this award is not based on need or financial aid eligibility. If you apply/have applied for need-based financial aid at the University, you will receive more information on your total financial aid package directly from Student Financial Services. Your scholarship will be calculated into your overall aid package.
Summer SessionYour scholarship may not be used to attend summer session classes.
Leaves of Absence & Withdrawing
