VSAC Shows You How: Apply now for a VT state grant & scholarships.

More than $25 million available annually for eligible Vermonters

WINOOSKI (Oct. 28, 2020) – Join Vermont Student Assistance Corp. for its next VSAC Shows You How webinar, Nov. 18, from 6-7 p.m., on how to apply for a Vermont state grant and any of the 120+ scholarships managed by VSAC.

During the live presentation, simulcast to Facebook, Marcia Corey, manager of VSAC’s grant operations, walks you through how to complete the Vermont state grant application, question by question, followed by the steps needed to apply for scholarships. Register here. Or watch the recorded video later at your convenience.

VSAC provides about $25 million in grants and scholarships to Vermont students. Last year, eligible students received grants from $1,000 to $12,300. Because grants are “gift aid,” they are free money — the funds don’t have to be paid back. But you have to apply to be considered.

Students can also apply for any of the over 120 Vermont-based scholarships (more free money!) that are offered to students who want to continue their education or training after high school.

For both grants and scholarships, it only takes about an hour to complete the applications. We think it's worth the time, and we'll help you get it done.
