The Taigh Scholarship was established to inspire and encourage residents of Peacham to pursue a post-secondary education, especially among rural students who may be the first in their families to attend college. Applicants must attend an accredited school approved for federal Title IV funding (Pell grants, Stafford loans, PLUS loans); reside in Caledonia County and demonstrate financial need and education/work ethic.
VSAC helps students of all ages save, plan & pay for college and career training. VSAC administers more than 120 scholarships available to Vermont residents. And we want to encourage you to apply. This scholarship was established by the friends, family and colleagues of Carol Hurley, a VSAC outreach counselor who helped first-generation college-bound students prepare for college.
