Vermont Law and Graduate School announced a new scholarship initiative to support the Indigenous people of Vermont, which makes up 0.3% (1,873) of the state’s population.

The First Nations scholarship is available to citizens of state or federally recognized tribes to enable Indigenous students to pursue careers in any of the many programs offered by Vermont Law and Graduate School, including legal degrees within the law school and master’s degrees offered by the graduate school and its school for the environment, according to the school’s announcement.
