What Your Gift Supports

The Leahy Scholars Initiative will leverage the shared strengths and visions of two of UVM’s signature, university-wide programs: the Honors College and the Gund Institute for Environment.

Your gift will support permanent endowments for the Leahy Scholars at both the Honors College and the Gund Institute.

With your gift, you will be providing scholarships and high-impact training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students committed to academic excellence and societal impact.
