Lake Champlain Sea Grant Achieves Institutional Status
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Sea Grant College Program announce the designation of the Lake Champlain Sea Grant program as a Sea Grant Institute.
Lake Champlain Sea Grant earned the honor as an Institutional Program for demonstrating excellence in research, education and public service dedicated to the environmentally responsible management and development of the Nation’s marine, coastal and Great Lakes resources.
The designation as an Institute makes Lake Champlain Sea Grant eligible for increases in federal research funds up to $1 million to support its strategic goals. The program first began as a Sea Grant outreach project in 1998 and was elevated to a Sea Grant Coherent Area Program after positive performance review in 2012.
