Terms and Conditions
The University of Vermont Presidential Scholarship was established to recognize academically talented, first-time, first-year, out-of-state students enrolling at the University. Students selected for this scholarship typically have academic records that place them in the top tiers of their secondary school. Described below are the rights and responsibilities associated with the Presidential Scholarship.
In order to retain your scholarship, you must remain a full-time student (defined as enrolling in twelve or more credits per semester), and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0, evaluated on a semester basis. Students who fail to maintain the minimum cumulative GPA will be afforded a one-semester probationary period, after which the scholarship will be withdrawn if a 3.0 cumulative GPA has not been achieved. Once withdrawn, your scholarship will not be reinstated in the future. Your scholarship is a revocable award from the University.
Length of Scholarship
You may receive your scholarship for a maximum of eight semesters or until you graduate, whichever comes first.
Scholarship eligibility will be re-evaluated based on changes to your residency classification. Changes in residency classification may result in a loss or reduction of scholarship assistance.
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.
Relationship to Need-Based Financial Aid
As a merit scholarship, your 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.
Your scholarship may not be used to attend summer session classes.
Leaves of Absence & Withdrawing
You may take an approved Leave of Absence from the University for up to two consecutive semesters and retain your scholarship upon your return. Your scholarship will not be reinstated if you choose to withdraw, become inactive, or if you are suspended or dismissed from the University.
How to Accept Your Scholarship
To accept your scholarship, visit www.uvm.edu/admissions/appstatus and pay your admissions acceptance fee to enroll at UVM by the date indicated on your letter of admission.
