Vermont is the second least populous state in the US. This is mostly due to its size – it's rather small. But don't let the state's size fool you. There are plenty of great colleges in Vermont and plenty of great college scholarship opportunities also.
Vermont has 24 colleges and universities. Some of the better known institutions include the University of Vermont, Middlebury College, Bennington College and Green Mountain College. Marlboro College (in Marlboro, VT) is just one of the many smaller, well-regarded liberal arts schools in the area. Rounding out the mix are state-run community colleges that offer diplomas, certificates and associate degrees.
Degree candidates looking for college scholarships in Vermont will find a range of options. Both public and private funds are available. Public college scholarships are distributed for both need-based and merit-based funding opportunities. Private scholarships are awarded for students pursuing degrees in majors such as culinary arts, architecture, engineering, English, social sciences and many more.
