Offering Veterans New Opportunities
At Sterling College, your classrooms include the fields, farms, woodlots, sugarbushes, watersheds, and mountains of Vermont’s beautiful Northeast Kingdom. You’ll dig your hands into the soil, grow food, cut lumber, map invasive plants, care for horses, spin fiber, and track wildlife. Here, you can tap into your passion for the natural world and cultivate a life of environmental stewardship.
The Sterling College community is open and friendly and includes people of diverse life experiences, including military veterans. We offer five environmentally focused majors—Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, Outdoor Education, Ecology, or Environmental Humanities. But we also allow students to self-design a program to match your life and career goals.
Sterling is a member of Student Veterans of America.
Yellow Ribbon Program
Sterling College is a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program helps close the gap between your GI Bill benefits and the cost of a Sterling College education. Sterling offers up to $2,500/semester, for 10 student veterans. The program is a dollar-for-dollar match program and is an automatic benefit provided by the Veteran’s Administration and Sterling College.
