Vermont Incentive Grant
Vermont residents are eligible to apply for the Vermont Incentive grant if they are:
- Accepted or enrolled in an undergraduate degree or certificate program, and do not already
have a bachelor’s degree;
- Enrolled in at least 12 credits per term
Vermont Incentive grants are available for Vermont residents enrolled full time at any postsecondary
institution that participates in the Federal Pell Grant program, including out-of-state institutions.
The grant award is based on financial need and the cost of attendance of the student's school. The
minimum and maximum award amounts are determined annually based on funding availability.
How to Apply
To apply, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a Vermont grant
application. You can complete both the FAFSA and the Vermont grant application online at
www.vsac.org. Vermont grant applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis as long
as funding is available.
