Out-of-State Students Only

The Governor’s Institutes on Vermont is open to Vermont residents and to students from NH and NY who attend interstate district public high schools serving NH/VT or NY/VT.  Most students can 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 by selecting “Apply” from the menu above.

Occasionally GIV welcomes out-of-state and English-speaking international students through a partnership program offered by the host college.  In 2018, the Current Issues and Youth Activism Institute is the only Institute that will accept out-of-state and international students. These guest participants are not eligible for GIV sliding scale tuition subsidies.  Please direct inquiries about application, pricing and scholarships for out-of-state students to:
