Make Young Vermonters' College Dreams Come True

It’s the time of year when high school seniors and their parents are thinking about the future. If college or trade school is of interest but money is tight, a scholarship from Kids’ Chance of Vermont could be the answer for a student with a parent who was seriously injured at work.

Kids’ Chance provides educational scholarships to Vermont students who may not be able to pay for higher education because of a parent’s work injury. They have a high award rate, and they are looking for applicants!

Applications for the 2024-2025 school year are now open until July 12, 2024. Go to to apply.

Kids’ Chance is a national nonprofit charity supported by Biggam Fox Skinner and many other organizations. When a parent gets injured on the job and can’t return to work right away, their family often suffers a dramatic drop in income and paying for education becomes a struggle or even impossible. A Kids’ Chance scholarship helps a family with tuition and other costs related to education.

Since 2014, Kids' Chance of Vermont has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships to young Vermonters to study engineering, physical therapy, welding, construction management, education, nursing, cosmetology, and more. The average amount awarded to date is $6,700.

Attorney Kelly Massicotte, who serves as treasurer of Kids' Chance of Vermont, said, “We want to make our clients and our community aware of this fantastic opportunity for families of injured workers to afford higher education for their kids. Kids’ Chance’s mission is to give money to children of injured workers! You have lost so much due to your injury, let us give something back.”
