High school students from Vermont looking to boost their skills and gain college experience this summer should apply now to the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont (GIV) for award-winning, fun intensive study opportunities in a wide range of subjects.

GIV offers 11 Institutes at 9 college campuses in topics including Arts, Architecture, Astronomy, Information Technology, Science, Math and more. Students choose their favorite topics and dive deep into the concepts and careers surrounding that topic while living in a dorm and meeting other motivated young people from all over the state.

“Many of Vermont’s best young artists will be at our Arts Institute working with professional actors, musicians and artists this summer, and aspiring coders, game designers and data scientists will be at our Information Technology/Digital Media Institute soaking up advanced study in those topics,” said Karen Taylor Mitchell, GIV’s Executive Director. “They will gain in-depth skills, experience living on a college campus, and leave with friends from all over the state who share their interest and ambitions.” Taylor Mitchell notes that in a study GIV did recently, 88% of alumni called GIV “one of the most important experiences of their high school years.”

GIV uses a sliding scale tuition model where families only pay what they can afford towards tuition. Room and board for the 1-2 week Institutes are included.

The Governor’s Institutes of Vermont is 501(c)3 nonprofit working in partnership with the Vermont Agency of Education, Vermont Department of Labor, VSAC, private donors, and all Vermont high schools. New for 2018, students can get college credits for dual enrollment for completing the Entrepreneurship and Environmental Science Institutes.
