BFUHS students – Want to have an amazing experience this summer?

Check out the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont (GIV)! Summer applications are now open!


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 (Art/Music/Theater, Technology/Game Design, Architecture, Youth Activism, Environmental Science and many more). 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!

Cost is based on a sliding scale and may be minimal.

The deadline to apply is March 28th. See Andrea Carlson in the Guidance Office for more information.
