At the heart of all great institutions of higher education is a liberal arts college that brings together the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and fine arts. That role is fulfilled at the University of Vermont through the College of Arts and Sciences. Whatever majors or career paths students choose, their liberal arts education prepares them to be thoughtful and engaged citizens who will help to make the world a better place. Your giving to the College helps us to provide the first-rate academic environment that attracts the best faculty and students and keeps the University of Vermont among the nation's finest small research institutions.

Additional funds to support

In addition to the College of Arts and Sciences general fund, you may choose to support one of the following:

  • The College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Discretionary Fund is made up of unrestricted gifts that give the Dean long-term flexibility for advancing strategic priorities across the College's departments and majors.
  • The Arts and Sciences Scholarship Fund provides annual support for deserving students based on merit and need.
  • The Interdisciplinary Experiential Engagement Fund promotes high-impact educational experiences that address questions or topics using a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, or transdisciplinary approach. The intention is to increase the range of offerings that expose students to multiple disciplines in an integrated or linked fashion, and include "real-world" learning experiences (i.e., service, internship, or research/creative components).
  • The Jane emily Clymer Scholarship - Provides full and/or partial scholarship awards to qualified women in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Vermont.
  • The George V. Kidder Merit Scholarship Fund - Provides scholarship awards to out-of-state undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences who have completed at least three semesters at the University of Vermont.
