Out-of-State Students Only

The Governor’s Institutes on Vermont is open to Vermont residents and to students from bordering (NH/NY) high schools that also serve Vermonters.  Most students apply to the summer Institutes through their schools. (Homeschool students may apply directly to GIV). In-state students can find more about the application process and get started here.

Occasionally, GIV partners with host organizations to accept a limited number of out-of-state students referred by those organizations. These guest participants are not eligible for sliding scale tuition. Out-of-state guest participants may apply to enroll in the 2015 Engineering, Information Technology and Digital Media, or Current Issues and Youth Activism Institutes by contacting the appropriate individual below:
