Goddard College
Plainfield, United States- Vermont



   

University description (as per official university website)

Goddard College was chartered in 1938 as a successor to Goddard Seminary (founded in 1863), a Universalist preparatory school, which had operated in Barre, Vermont during the Civil War era. The Universalists, a controversial 'liberal' sect, started the seminary as an alternative to the Baptists' Colby Academy and the Methodists' Montpelier Seminary. It served as a feeder school to Tufts University. In 1929 the Seminary became Goddard School for Girls, and by 1935 had evolved into a junior college for women.

The founding of the present Goddard College coincided with the purchase of part of the Greatwood Farms Estate from the Martin family in Plainfield by the newly chartered Goddard College Corporation. The first students, a hopeful group of forty, and their teachers began renovating in the fall of 1938. Renovation has been a fairly constant Goddard activity since then. Greatwood Farm, which was comprised of approximately 250 acres and a collection of historic buildings, has remained the home of Goddard and has been named to the National Register of Historic Places.

Goddard College specializes in low residency education, a format that is designed to accommodate the lifestyles of working adults. Unlike "online courses" or traditional classes, the low residency education format offers the best of both worlds.

The low residency education model is a faculty mentor based approach that begins with a required eight day residency each semester. Students travel to Goddard residencies from all over the country. The flexibility of not having to drive to class twice per week or live on campus for the entire semester is very attractive to working adults with families and other responsibilities.

Goddard offers low residency BA, BFA, MA, and MFA degree programs in Individualized Studies, Education, Health Sciences, Psychology and Counseling, Sustainable Business, Creative Writing, and Interdisciplinary Arts.


Scholarships:

The Pearl Fund Scholarship - $1,000/year for 2 students

Given in memory of Pearl Fink by her children Janis Ian and Eric Fink. Pearl enrolled in Goddard’s Adult Degree Program at the age of 49, after having been in the workforce for several decades. Getting a BA was a lifetime goal for her. Pearl found her passion in playwriting, going on to earn a MA from Goddard at the age of 52 and writing a full-length play.
Criteria: Given to a student who demonstrates financial need and aspires to earn a first- time BA or MA degree and has either: a) been out of school for 10+ years, or b) has been in the workforce for 10+ years.
The Spirit of Goddard Scholarship - $1,000/year for 7 students

Created by several donors, the Spirit of Goddard scholarship supports Goddard’s commitment to progressive education and its vision for a diverse and inclusive academic community.



Criteria: Given to students who qualify for financial aid, and who demonstrate a commitment to the mission of Goddard College (see application form).



Original Spirit Scholarship Donors:

* GUSS Scholarship – established in 1995 by Piers Anthony and Carol Jacob, who attended the residential program during the 1950’s. Other contributions have been added to this fund; in particular gifts given in memory of Daniel (Bucky) Schling (BA, 1989) by his parents Phyllis and Joseph Schling.
