Marlboro Introduces Renaissance Scholars Program

Wanted SignMarlboro College is pleased to announce a full tuition scholarship that will invite the interest of extraordinary students from across the country. The new Renaissance Scholars program will attract students who possess intense intellectual passions, a desire to leave the world better than they found it, and the tenacity to realize their most ambitious goals.

“We’re looking for a few rugged intellectuals who are ready to bring their talents to our campus community nestled in the foothills of Vermont’s Green Mountains,” said Kevin Quigley, president of Marlboro College. “Our Renaissance Scholars will use their passion for learning, interdisciplinary intelligence, and global perspective to enrich our culture of unconventional thinking and bold action.”

The Renaissance Scholars program will award a full tuition scholarship to one student in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Selection criteria are based on each student’s leadership, innovation, perseverance, and community service, and scholarships are renewable for four years, contingent on good academic and community standing.

“Renaissance Scholars defy easy categorization, which makes finding and recruiting these ‘needles in a haystack’ challenging for a small college like ours,” said Brigid Lawler, dean of admissions at Marlboro College. “When we find them—and vice versa—their wide-ranging interests, bold confidence, and craving for intellectual adventure makes them ideally suited for a Marlboro education.”
