Green Mountain Grad

The State of Vermont, Vermont State Colleges System, and VSAC are providing a gift to 2020 and 2021 Vermont high school graduates of one tuition-free college or training course at CCV or any VSCS school. The Green Mountain Grad program is available to all 2021 and 2020 grads, even if they are already enrolled in a VSCS school. The program covers summer courses starting after July 1, 2021, fall 2021 courses, and spring 2022 courses. Tuition is free, but some courses may have fees, textbooks, and other materials that students are responsible for. CCV financial aid counselors can help with those details.

Best Bet Career Training Programs for Vermonters

The J. Warren & Lois McClure Foundation has identified seven “best bet” career training programs for Vermonters in 2021 that lead to a recognized credential and a great shot at attaining a promising job within 18 months. These seven programs are available through the Community College of Vermont or Vermont Technical College.

CCV Offerings:
Graphic Design Certificate
Bookkeeping Certificate
IT Service Desk Specialist Certificate
Certified Production Technician

VTC Offerings:
Practical Nursing Program – VTC
Electrical & Plumbing Apprenticeships – VTC
Software & Web Development Programs – VTC

Students can take their first two courses in any of these four CCV programs for FREE, thanks to generous support from the Vermont Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Students can enroll during three windows throughout the year, and each program offers a pathway to additional educational and career opportunities. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis. Students must be new to the academic program and enroll in at least two courses.

CCV is also offering additional scholarships to students who enroll at least half-time in a subsequent semester (fall 2021). Contact your local financial aid counselor for more information.

Additional scholarships for these “best bet” programs are available through the Curtis Fund, administered by the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation. To learn more about VSAC-connected scholarships, call 877-961-4369 to connect with an education outreach counselor.
