GIV offers a "pay-what-you-can" tuition in 2021 to make sure every young Vermonter can participate.
2021 tuition is pay-what-you-can and the suggested tuition is $550 per program. Our goal is to make sure every high school age Vermonter has the opportunity to participate, regardless of their family’s financial situation.
Pay-what-you-can tuition was a success for our 2020 online programs and we are very grateful to all the families that were able to pay at or above the suggested tuition price. Your support of GIV allows us to focus on continuing to empower young people across Vermont by inspiring their academic and creative passions!

Payment for services provided are not tax-deductible, but any amount you contribute above $550 per program can be deducted from your taxes.
Students must submit an online application to be considered for GIV programs; payment prior to acceptance does not entitle student(s) to attend.
You can apply in confidence knowing that if your program is cancelled for any reason, including COVID-19, all money you have paid towards enrollment will be refunded.
If you decide not to attend and we receive written notice of this at least two weeks prior to the start of the program, we will refund your payment.
If you have questions or additional concerns, please reach us at [email protected].
Residents of states other than Vermont accepted to GIV Institutes are not eligible for subsidized tuition. Students from border schools in NH, NY and MA which serve a significant proportion of Vermonters may submit an application for reduced tuition to GIV to be considered for any scholarship funds that may be available to those specific locations.
*Please Note – Scholarships are not redeemable for cash.
