Every grant opens a door. Every scholarship funds a dream. Every dollar saved—or borrowed—supports a chance.

For a student to aim higher. Go further. And build something better—for their family, for their community, and for our shared world.

Who We Are

The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation is unique in its scope and role. Created by the Vermont Legislature in 1965 as a public nonprofit agency, we advocate for students and their families to ensure that they have the information, the counseling and the financial aid to achieve their education goals.

We begin by helping families save for education. Our counselors work with students in nearly every Vermont middle school and high school, and again as adults. Our financial aid programs attract national recognition, and our loan programs and loan forgiveness programs are saving Vermont families thousands of dollars in interest.

How we view our mission

Our vision is to create opportunities for all Vermont students, but particularly for those—of any age—who believe that the doors to higher education are closed to them.

Our commitment to racial & social justice

To our colleagues, students, and families of color: We see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
