ACADEMIC INNOVATION & PROGRAM SUPPORT

SCHOLARSHIPS

Champlain College is committed to providing as much financial assistance to our students as possible. The vital scholarships below would not be possible without support from our donors.

Student leaders

SUPPORT-A-STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP

Support-A-Student scholarships are often the deciding factor in whether or not a student is able to pursue his or her educational goals. This program helps fill in the gap for students who have exhausted all other financial resources, including federal and state education loans, family contributions and jobs.

VERMONT FIRST SCHOLARSHIP

The Vermont First Scholarship is a need-based program that gives Vermonters broader access to higher education. This scholarship provides financial assistance to qualified "first-generation" college students—those whose parents did not attend college.

STUDY ABROAD SCHOLARSHIP

The Office of International Education supports Champlain's goal of ensuring that our students graduate as engaged citizens with international experience and a global perspective. The Study Abroad Scholarship makes it possible for all interested and qualified students to have an international experience regardless of financial circumstances.

SINGLE PARENT SCHOLARSHIP

The Single Parents Program helps low-income single parents get a post-secondary education in which they acquire marketable skills that will ultimately allow them to become more financially independent. One of Champlain's longest standing assistance programs, in addition to tuition scholarships, the program provides on-site advocacy and counseling to students trying to balance child-rearing, a full academic curriculum and often financial challenges far beyond those of traditional students.

YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAM AND VETERANS SCHOLARSHIP

Champlain College provides a significant tuition waiver for veterans who qualify for assistance under the Yellow Ribbon Program provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill. As a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, Champlain is entering into an agreement with the Veteran's Administration (VA) to fund tuition costs above the highest in-state undergraduate tuition rate. This agreement will allow Champlain College's additional tuition assistance to then be matched by VA benefits, resulting in free tuition for qualifying veterans.

NEW AMERICAN STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP

The New American Scholarship is a need-based scholarship for Vermont's refugee or asylum students.

ACCOUNTING EXCELLENCE ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP

This permanent fund was established in 2007 as a tribute to Champlain's distinguished Accounting faculty. The scholarships awarded from this fund assist accomplished accounting students.
