My most significant discovery 🎨

"My Bennington experience has introduced me to so much of the world that I would never have known without the opportunities, connections, and insights Bennington has offered me. One of my most significant discoveries at Bennington is my love for art. I've loved getting to work in the ceramics studio, and I can't wait to keep making more art in future studio classes."

-Julia '24

B-MATCHED in April

“Bennington empowers students to be pioneers, like my mother and her 1936 classmates in Bennington’s first class. Scholarship support is essential for students today to acquire knowledge and develop interests to become pioneers for tomorrow.”

-Margaret Rood Lenzner '67

Now through April 30, Margaret Rood Lenzner ’67 is matching the first $100,000 to student scholarships in honor of Bennington's first graduates.
