To help the Vermont high school class of 2022 chart and start their career training, the Vermont Community Foundation will offer a $1,000 stipend to each student who enrolls in CCV’s free Early College Plus program to pursue one of three certificate programs: Cybersecurity Fundamentals, Graphic Design, or IT Service Desk Specialist.
Stipends can be used to help cover the cost of books, materials, transportation, food, fees, or other non-academic expenses. Students will also receive enhanced advising from a specialized counselor from the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC).
CCV’s Early College program allows high school seniors to complete their last year of high school and first year of college at the same time, tuition-free. Students enroll in 4-5 CCV classes in both the fall and spring semesters, earning college credits that also count toward high school graduation.
