The Vermont Student Assistance Corp. reminds high school seniors and returning college students to apply now for any of the 126 scholarships administered by VSAC.
Scholarships – like grants – are financial aid that you do not need to pay back. Scholarships are offered by many different groups, organizations, and even individuals for a variety of achievements by many types of students.
Those administered by VSAC collectively are worth $5.7 million, according to a VSAC statement.
Scholarships are usually competitive, with eligible applicants competing for a limited number of awards.
VSAC scholarships are gathered in a booklet for the 2018–2019 academic year that’s available in a hard copy or online. Students may download a PDF version, order a free print version by mail or request a copy from a high school guidance counselor.
VSAC has online links to complete the unified scholarship application; required transcripts, recommendations or other documentation can be uploaded at the VSAC website.
The deadline for VSAC-assisted scholarships is Feb. 16. For more information, call 888-253-4819 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
