Local Students to Attend the UVM as Green & Gold Scholars

BURLINGTON – Half of Vermont’s top students eligible for the Green & Gold Scholarship will be attending UVM this fall, benefitting from a four-year, full-tuition award. UVM’s Green & Gold Scholarship is an academic merit scholarship program which considers the nomination of the highest-achieving rising high school senior from every eligible Vermont secondary school, and Vermont residents attending select border schools. The following students were awarded the Green & Gold scholarship: Iva Demag of Wolcott, a graduating senior at Craftsbury Academy and Jess Royer of Hardwick, a graduating senior at Hazen Union School.

The Green & Gold Scholarship is built on the generosity of the late Genevieve Patrick. Part of her $9 million bequest, realized in 2000, created the foundation for the scholarship. More than four hundred Vermonters have since earned their UVM degrees on the strength of this support, many of them graduating to careers in their home state.
