Welcome to the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont (GIV) 


The Adventure Begins!

Our first summer institutes were kicked off on June 19th. Over 100 students from all around the state are learning coding, character design, syntax, descriptive language, algebra and trigonometry while having a blast at Information Technology & Digital Media, Young Writers, and Mathematical Sciences. Check out our Facebook page for updates on how things are going!


The Governor’s Institutes of Vermont provides prestigious, fun, accelerated learning residencies on college campuses for highly-motivated Vermont teenagers.

While each Institute is unique, they share some similarities: they’re all residential, so you live on a college campus and have access to all the resources the college provides – from state-of-the-art labs to studios; they’re all hands-on intense bursts of learning and fun, where you and your new friends who share your interests explore topics in-depth with leading professionals in the field; they’re a chance to try something new, make lasting memories with new friends, and learn more than you can imagine!
