College offers guarantees for graduate programs

Beginning with the class of 2013, Marlboro is guaranteeing admission to its Graduate and Professional Studies programs for graduating seniors, within 18 months of commencement, and awarding these students a scholarship equivalent to 50 percent of the tuition. This offer is also being extended to all other alumni for a limited period, ending in February 2015.

“This new program expresses our confidence in and commitment to graduates of Marlboro College,” said President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell in her announcement of the new guarantees. “One of the fundamental tenets of liberal arts education is to spur students on to deeper exploration and greater achievement. As members of the Graduate and Professional Studies programs, students will gain the relevant knowledge and practical skills they need to focus their scholarship further in a particular career path.”

The announcement is just the latest move to cultivate the connection between the two campuses in Marlboro and Brattleboro. Other recent initiatives include offering dual-degree programs that link the undergraduate and graduate trajectories and facilitating joint seminars that draw on the expertise of both faculties and student bodies.
