Non-Degree students.

A grant is probably the best kind of financial aid a student can receive because it’s money that doesn’t need to be repaid. It’s sometimes referred to as “gift aid.”

There are three types of Vermont Grants available.

Vermont Incentive grant for Vermont residents enrolled in 12 or more credits per term

Eligibility

Vermont residents are eligible to apply for a Vermont Incentive grant if they are:

  1. accepted or enrolled in an undergraduate degree or certificate program, and do not already have a bachelor's degree; unless they are
    • attending the University of Vermont College of Medicine, or
    • enrolled in a doctor of veterinary medicine program.
  2. enrolled in at least 12 credits per term

Vermont Incentive grants are available for Vermont residents enrolled full-time at any postsecondary institution within the United States or Canada that participates in the federal Pell grant program.


Amount

The grant award amount is based on financial need and the cost of attendance of the student’s program at the school. The minimum and maximum award amounts are determined annually based on funding availability.

Note: Vermont grant applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funding is available.


Vermont Part-Time grant for Vermont residents enrolled in fewer than 12 credits per term

Eligibility

Vermont residents are eligible to apply for a Vermont Part-Time grant if they are:

  1. accepted or enrolled in an undergraduate degree or certificate program, and do not already have a bachelor's degree; unless they are
    • attending the University of Vermont College of Medicine, or
    • enrolled in a doctor of veterinary medicine program.
  2. enrolled in fewer than 12 credits per term

Vermont Part-Time grants are available for Vermont residents enrolled less than full-time at any postsecondary institution within the United States or Canada that participates in the federal Pell grant program.


Amount

The grant award amount is based on financial need and the cost of attendance of the student’s program at the school. The amount of each award varies based on the number of credit hours.

Note: Vermont grant applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funding is available.


Vermont Non-Degree grant for Vermont residents enrolled in a non-degree course or program

Eligibility

A Vermont resident enrolled in a non-degree (non-matriculated) course that will improve employability or encourage further study is eligible to apply for a Vermont Non-Degree grant.

An applicant may receive a Non-Degree grant for up to two enrollment terms per financial aid year (July 1 – June 30), and a total of six terms of Non-Degree grants in a lifetime.


Amount

The grant award amount is based on financial need and the cost of the course. The maximum award amount per term is determined each year by VSAC based on funding availability.

Note: Vermont grant applications are considered on a first-come,
first-served basis as long as funding is available.
