Vermont high school class of 2022: get a jumpstart on your college education at CCV in the Early College Plus program. The Vermont Community Foundation is offering 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 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.
