The Green Mountain at Fox Run Rose Caron Scholarship
Green Mountain at Fox Run is located in Vermont. It is the longest-running for-women-only weight loss spa and retreat in the USA, and has offered proven behavior, nutrition, fitness and lifestyle solutions without dieting since 1973.
Dr. Rose Caron, a nationally-renowned psychologist was a Green Mountain alum for 30 years. With her husband and research partner, Albert Caron, PhD, Rose is credited with the development of the field of psycholinguistics of newborn infants. A graduate of Vassar (BA) and University of Chicago (PhD), Rose was a highly endowed researcher at the National Institutes of Health and Professor, George Washington University and Boston University, in both the departments of Psychology and Women’s Health Studies.
In honor of Rose Caron, who attended the first Green Mountain program in 1973 and became a frequent participant and advisor to the program, the Rose Caron Scholarship assists women in need of financial aid who wish to improve the quality of their lives through serious lifestyle change. A limited number of scholarships will be provided each year to help deserving woman attend Green Mountain at Fox Run in Vermont.
In accordance with the program’s guidelines, these are partial scholarships, with funds made available based on qualifications – which is a combination of your history (herstory), goals and the level of readiness to tackle your issues that is apparent in your information, as well as financial concerns. Rose felt strongly that a key element for the success experienced by the women who come to Green Mountain was that they were willing to make an investment in themselves, which attached a real “value” to the experience. Women willing to invest in themselves on every level (emotional, time away from home as well as some financial commitment) are the women that Green Mountain would like to help.
