Information about VSAC financial aid for school financial aid professionals

As Vermont’s nonprofit higher education agency, VSAC provides fixed-rate student and parent loans to finance education for students coming to Vermont for college—and for Vermont residents attending colleges in the U.S. and abroad.

Vermont residents can apply for grant money through VSAC’s grant programs. The programs offer 3 grant options for full-time, part-time, and non-degree students.

VERMONT'S MICRO GRANT:  Vermont schools can now nominate students for a Vermont Micro Grant — to help those at risk of discontinuing their education due to small, unexpected expenses incurred during the school year. The eligibility criteria for the micro grant is provided on the nomination form that is sent to school at the beginning of the academic year.
