Lyndon Promise Scholarship

Lyndon is aware of the extraordinary economic circumstances affecting our country. Many families sending their students to college in the years to come face financial uncertainties that may affect their ability to pay for college over the entire four years.

In response to these circumstances, we have established the renewable Lyndon Promise Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to students with at least a cumulative GPA of 2.5.

Requests for the Lyndon Promise Scholarship will be accepted as long as funds remain available each year. The scholarship committee meets periodically beginning in April to determine recipients.

Contact the financial aid department for more information by email, or call us at 802 626-6396.

Lyndon Early Promise Program


With the help of the Jane’s Trust, the Patrick and Marcelle Leahy Center for Rural Students at Lyndon State College established the Early Promise Scholarship Program to assist graduating high school seniors who are the first in their immediate family to attend college and who plan to continue their education at Lyndon State College. It provides students who would otherwise not be able to afford a four-year college degree with up to $5,000 scholarship per year for four years.
