Here's How to Get Involved in GIV

If you’re ready to apply simply hit the button below.

Online Application Sneak Peek

The online application for GIV’s summer programs has three tasks. Once complete you will be able to submit your application for review.

The application has 3 parts:
  1. Student Information: Provides basic info like name, age, email address, school, parent/guardian info, etc.
  2. Application Form: You’ll choose which topics/strands interest you and answer a few short essay questions to help us understand why you’d be perfect for GIV!
  3. Recommendations: You need two recommendations from teachers or adults that are not related to you. These don’t need to be formal letters but rather a quick online form that you send directly to their email.
Here’s what the application looks like to students:

 

Once all tasks are complete, students will be able to hit the “Submit” button. We will then be able to access the application and review it.

Do You Want College Credits?

You now have the option to receive UVM and VTC college credit for participation in the Environmental Science and Technology or Entrepreneurship Institutes. For many students, this is free thanks to the state of Vermont’s Dual Enrollment voucher program.

For more information on obtaining Entrepreneurship college credit, contact Laurel Butler: 802-728-1000 or [email protected]. For more information on obtaining Environmental Science Institute, contact Program Director Christine Massey at [email protected] or UVM Pre-College Programs at [email protected].

GIV and Your School

Students thrive at the Governor’s Institutes. It’s a great opportunity!” – Jean Wheeler, Dean of Students, Lyndon Institute

Every school has a designated person who coordinates nominations for that school. We call that person a Talent Scout! You can find the Talent Scout for your school below.  If you have any questions, contact us.

Make sure you stay on top of our most current offerings and application deadlines by joining our mailing list! Click here to join.
