802 Opportunity Grant
This provides tuition-FREE college for the fall and spring semesters to any student in a degree program whose family income is $75,000 or less and does not already have a bachelor’s degree. Students will be required to complete a FAFSA and Vermont Grant Application through Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC). New AND current students are eligible.

Vermont Tuition Advantage
With generous support from Governor Phil Scott and the Vermont Legislature, the Vermont Tuition Advantage program reduces CCV tuition by 50% for eligible Vermonters in certain high-demand certificate and degree programs. Available during the 2023-2024 academic year, the discount applies to in-state students on a first come, first-served basis. Learn more at ccv.edu/advantage.
Vermont Community Health Scholarship
This program, in partnership with the Vermont Department of Health, provides tuition- and fee-free college in our Community Health certificate program. Students are required to complete a FAFSA and the Vermont Grant Application through Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC). Students are also eligible for stipends to support other non-tuition costs like textbooks and transportation.
Welcome Home Scholarship
This VSC program provides $5,000 per year for full-time students and $3,000 per year for part-time students who are transferring from an out-of-state institution, or have exited ANY college (including another VSC school) between March 2020 and May 2021. Only students that have previously received this scholarship are eligible for funds in the 2023-2024 academic year.
Degree Completion Scholarship
This VSC program provides tuition- and fee-FREE college to students who earn less than 300% of the federal poverty line by household size, have not been enrolled in a higher education institution since May 2019, have at least 40 transferable credits and who do not already have a bachelor’s degree. Students can receive up to 30 credits of tuition-FREE college during the fall and spring semester of each academic year. Students will be required to complete a FAFSA and Vermont Grant Application through the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC).
