Grants available for Lake Champlain research

ADDISON COUNTY — Grants are now available to support projects through the South Lake Champlain Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation. 
The South Lake Champlain Fund supports projects focused on education and research concerning the cultural and ecological history and heritage of southern Lake Champlain. Projects must be located on the southern portion of Lake Champlain (the area of Lake Champlain south of Crown Point in both Vermont and New York) with a preference for projects directly on the lake or in close proximity. 
School-based projects are encouraged. 
The fund also aims to support projects that involve experts and others living in the southern Lake Champlain region. Matching funds are encouraged but not required. 
Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Friday, March 6, and applicants will be notified at the end of May. Visit for more information or to apply. Those interested may also contact Celia Cadwell at ccadwell@ or (802) 388-3355 ext. 222 for more information. 
Middlebury-based Vermont Community Foundation inspires giving and brings people and resources together to make a difference in Vermont. A family of hundreds of funds and foundations, the foundation provides the advice, investment vehicles, and back-office expertise that make it easy for the people who care about Vermont to find and fund the causes they love.
