Welcome Home / Transfer Scholarship

This scholarship is designed to support Vermonters transferring to Vermont Tech from an out-of-state institution, or those returning to Vermont Tech after exiting the college in 2020-2021. This program’s mission is to help students come “home” to Vermont or to complete their degree if they left college without finishing it in the last year. This scholarship is for the 2021-2022 academic year for all undergraduate degree and certificate programs.

This scholarship is part of the state-funded Critical Occupations Scholarships and is applied after institutional, state and federal gift aid is applied. Combined aid may not exceed the student’s total cost of tuition, fees, institutional room and board (or budgeted living allowance if living off campus), and an allowance for books.
