MONTPELIER, Vt. — Community College of Vermont (CCV)-Winooski student Mikayla Elliott has been named a 2024 New Century Transfer Scholar and will receive a $2,250 scholarship. 

Elliott began taking Dual Enrollment classes at CCV during her senior year of high school. She completed CCV’s childcare certificate last fall, and will earn an early childhood education associate degree in spring 2024. She plans to transfer to UVM, where she will study early childhood special education. “I’m just really appreciative of [the scholarship] because it will help me at UVM,” she said. Elliott currently works part-time as a paraeducator in a pre-K classroom.

New Century Transfer Scholars are selected based on their academic accomplishments, leadership, activities, and how they extend their intellectual talents beyond the classroom. Over 2,200 students were nominated from more than 1,300 college campuses across the country. Only one New Century Transfer Scholar is selected from each state.

The program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, Phi Theta Kappa, and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). PTK is the national honor society for community college students. CCV’s chapter was established in 2016.
