Orange barUVM offers a variety of scholarships for Vermont students.

Prospective, first-time, first-year undergraduate students are automatically considered for the Vermont Scholars Award, Patrick Family Scholarship, Justin Morrill Scholarship, Grossman School of Business Scholarship, College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences Scholars Program, College of Arts and Sciences Liberal Arts Scholarship, and the Akol Aguek Scholarship, based on their application for admission. The Green and Gold Scholars Award, our premier scholarship for Vermont students, requires a nomination from an eligible high school and a separate review by UVM Admissions.
