The Governor’s Institutes of Vermont provides prestigious, fun, accelerated learning residencies on college campuses for highly-motivated young Vermonters.

Each Institute is unique, built around a single focus area.  But they all share certain similarities: they’re all residential, so you live on a college campus and have access to all the resources the college provides, from state-of-the-art labs to studios; they’re all hands-on intense bursts of learning and fun, where you and your new friends who share your interests explore topics in-depth with leading professionals in the field; and they’re a chance to try something new, make lasting memories with new friends, and learn more than you can imagine!
