The Ingenuity Scholarship
Creativity and problem-solving run core to this value. Students can demonstrate ingenuity in a variety of ways and disciplines, including but not limited to: the arts, coding, robotics, science and technology, independent learning projects.
The Independence Scholarship
Whether independent learning or self-advocacy, independence is essential in boarding school life and learning at Vermont Academy. Students who have exercised independence by starting a business, advocating for themselves, stepping into a leadership role, or have taken a risk that has resulted in growth or learning should apply for this scholarship.
The Community Scholarship
Our community is a grounding, intentional force. Students will feel a sense of belonging in a close-knit community while also understanding the impact of their actions in school and a wider global community. Students who have demonstrated leadership within their community, have a passion for community service or help others are encouraged to apply.
The Love of the Land Scholarship
Tucked in the safety of a small Vermont village on a 450-acre campus, students are never far from the natural environment around them. From ski hills and rivers to biking and hiking trails, our students' outdoor opportunities are endless. Demonstrated passion for the outdoors or active engagement in sustainability is a great way to show commitment to this value.
