What are the eligibility requirements to apply for the scholarship?

The only qualification for the scholarship is residency. Full-tuition scholarships are available for residents of California and bordering states.

Do I have to apply for the scholarship for each course?

Once you are awarded a scholarship, there is no need to reapply for subsequent courses. Provided that PG&E funds are available, we intend to pay tuition for all of your future program courses.

I am already enrolled and have started the program. Can I still get a scholarship for future courses?

Yes! We would be happy to consider you for a scholarship award to cover tuition for future course of the UVM Certificate Program. Please contact us info@uvmscholarships.org to discuss your scholarship options.

Should I enroll for the UVM Certificate Program before I am awarded a scholarship?

You are welcome to enroll for the UVM Certificate Program before you are awarded a scholarship. However, you will be required to make a deposit at that time. Please note that neither the UVM Scholarship Program nor UWSP can guarantee a refund of your deposit in the event you are awarded a scholarship.

I am interested in the Program, but now is not a great time for me to start. Will scholarships still be available later?

While there are no guarantees, we anticipate having scholarships available for participants starting the program in 2020 and 2021. You should anticipate spending 10-15 hours per week on coursework. Therefore, we encourage you to begin when you are confident you have the time to dedicate to the program.
