Travel stipend for high schoolers taking free college classes


Vermont Student Assistance Corp. is reminding high school juniors and seniors that there is a $150 stipend available to eligible students who plan to take a dual enrollment course next semester.

Vermont’s dual enrollment program allows high school students to take two college courses tuition-free while still in high school. Dual enrollment courses are offered on college campuses, online or on-site at a participating high school.

VSAC administers this new stipend program that provides $50,000 this year to help eligible high school students cover the costs of books, fees and travel associated with dual enrollment courses.

Students who plan to take a dual enrollment class, are eligible for free- and reduced-price lunch and need additional financial assistance to cover the costs of books, fees or travel, will be automatically considered for an annual stipend of $150 to assist with these costs. Funds are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

When students apply for a dual enrollment voucher at, they are asked if they are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch and if they will incur any costs associated with taking the dual enrollment course (textbooks, fees, transportation).  They are also asked to agree to share this information with VSAC for purposes of processing the stipends.

For more information on the dual enrollment program and obtaining a voucher, visit or email Marcia Corey at
