After a successful pilot year, Marlboro College announced its continued commitment to funding scholarships for alumni of Governor’s Institutes programs from across the country. Students who have completed a governor’s institute or school program, and who apply and are accepted at Marlboro, are eligible for a $5,000 scholarship toward their tuition.
“Marlboro gives students the opportunity to engage in high-level, creative, cross-disciplinary study,” said Brigid Lawler, dean of admissions at Marlboro. “Alumni of the governor’s schools and institutes across the country have a demonstrated commitment to this type of learning.” In 1983, Marlboro President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell, then the director of the Vermont Arts Council, co-founded the first Governor’s Institutes of Vermont (GIV). With this scholarship program, Marlboro College recognizes the unique role governor’s schools or institutes like GIV play in education, and the commitment of participants to engaged learning.
