Due to the foresight of an extraordinary woman, The Curtis Fund has been providing scholarship aid to Vermont men and women for over 107 years. Over its history, the Fund has grown to over $30 million, annually granting $1.4 to $1.75 million in scholarships to low-income Vermonters. Most of the grantees are also first-generation college students. We aim to level the playing field so that every Vermonter has a chance to obtain the education he or she needs, regardless of family background, income level, or birthplace.

In late 2018, the Curtis Fund became a supporting organization at the Vermont Community Foundation, joining a family of funders that includes others dedicated to helping every Vermonter access the education he or she needs and breaking the poverty cycle by building better lives.

The mission of The Curtis Fund has not changed since Mrs. Curtis left her bequest. The ongoing mission is to provide educational scholarships to Vermont students pursuing a postsecondary education. Financial aid is granted to Vermont students no matter their career goals.
