A new $3,000 - $6,000 scholarship opportunity for college-bound high school seniors from Vermont's Northeast Kingdom has been announced by Sterling College President Will Wootton.
The $100,000 endowment that supports the scholarship, which is guaranteed throughout the recipient's attendance at the College, was awarded to Sterling last year by the Gladys Brooks Foundation of New York.
Sterling, with 100 plus students, one of the nation's smallest liberal arts colleges and the only residential independent college in the three counties of the Northeast Kingdom - Essex, Orleans, and Caledonia Counties - specializes in self-designed studies in four broad academic areas: Conservation Ecology, Circumpolar Studies, Sustainable Agriculture, and Outdoor Education and Leadership.
Interested students need to apply to Sterling and, to be awarded the scholarship, have a record that demonstrates academic achievement and leadership skills. The scholarship is awarded without regard to financial need, but is based entirely on an applicant's abilities and potential to succeed at Sterling.
Also to qualify, students must have attended or been eligible to attend high school in the Northeast Kingdom. Twenty percent of Sterling's students are Vermonters - a high percent among the States 17 independent colleges.
