Looking Works to Control the Cost of a College EducationLooking Works to Control the Cost of a College Education - Among the most significant barriers facing
Vermonters who are seeking a college degree is the cost of an undergraduate education. Sterling College, a leading voice for environmental stewardship in the United States, is making a new commitment to providing financial aid to graduates of Vermont high schools, as well as associate degree recipients and transfer students.

Sterling College is committed to providing access to students who wish to pursue studies in Ecology, Environmental Humanities, Outdoor Education, or Sustainable Agriculture. While Sterling is a private college, it has committed to match in-state public
university tuition of the University of Vermont, for all Vermonters who gain admission for September 2013.

Sterling College is only one of seven federally recognized work colleges helping students reduce tuition and living expenses through on-campus work. Additionally, the College’s Board of Trustees recently limited the increase in tuition to only 2% for 2013-14. “The board understands that these are very challenging financial times for families in Vermont, and it is our intention that Sterling help ease the transition for students who want access to our unique programs of study,” said Wendy Koenig, Sterling College trustee and chair of its Enrollment Committee.

“We know that the growing career opportunities associated with the Sterling College curriculum are the most important areas of challenge facing society in the 21st century, and, that Vermont is the epicenter in the nation for studying critical disciplines focused on food, water, health, energy, soil, climate, and education, as such, it is essential that students who aspire to become environmental stewards have access to a Sterling education,” commented Matthew Derr, Sterling’s new president at the College’s most recent admission open house.

“Sterling College is taking important action to support Vermonters who aspire to earn a college degree. The College is committing itself to keeping educational costs under control. I commend President Derr’s leadership on both access and affordability,” offered Congressman Peter Welch of the College’s recent actions. (see HERE)

“Sterling College is committed to educating future generations of environmental stewards, and providing financial aid is a key commitment we make to see that that happens” continued President Derr. “We think big and act on our convictions, whether it’s divesting our endowment from fossil fuels or offering scholarships to climate justice activists.
