WINOOSKI, Vt. - The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC) is offering funding to help cover dual enrollment courses for low-income high school students.

A press release says eligible high school students can receive $150 to help cover the costs of books, fees, and travel.

“The Legislature has acted decisively to the demand for dual enrollment classes by providing this incentive to those students who may need additional financial assistance to realize the dream of college,” said Scott Giles, president and CEO of VSAC. “As the state’s nonprofit partner in encouraging all Vermonters to pursue their education goals after high school, VSAC applauds this important commitment to Vermont’s future.”

Funds will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on the dual enrollment program and obtaining a voucher, visit http://vtdualenrollment.org/.
