Description

Marlboro College – Scholarships

The university of Marlboro open their doors for the international students to regenerate in their yearly application.

Marlboro College is a private institution that was founded in 1946. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 146, its setting is rural, and the campus size is 366 acres. It utilizes a semester-based academic calendar. Marlboro College’s ranking in the 2020 edition of Best Colleges is National Liberal Arts Colleges.

More Details

  • Marlboro was founded in 1946 on the basis of a simple yet ambitious idea: that smart, motivated students can make decisions for themselves, and design a college education that meets their unique needs.
  • Since their first day of operation on a small farm in southern Vermont, Marlboro has always run on a community-governance model. Every member of the college community has a say in what happens here, whether we’re maintaining the miles of wilderness trails that surround us or adding a group tutorial to the course list for the coming semester.
  • The faculty pass along knowledge with mutual respect and high standards. Classes of less than 10 students are the norm, and undergrads are treated more like colleagues than students.
  • As an independent, not-for-profit college rooted in progressive education, Marlboro offers an antidote to the conformity and conventional thinking that characterize many education environments.
