Each year Champlain asks all alumni, parents and friends to consider unrestricted gifts which will be used to meet the College's most important needs and opportunities -- including faculty recruitment and retention, financial aid, library and computer resources, as well as facilities maintenance and renovation. Annual Giving funds allow Champlain to solve problems as they arise, and seize unexpected opportunities.

It may be hard to believe that we have students attending Champlain College who fall well below the poverty line, but we do. Each year, the Angel Fund provides support to students without families to go home to; students who can’t afford groceries when the Cafeteria closes, books and supplies for their classes, and the necessary warm clothing to get through the harsh Vermont winters. Your gift to the Angel Fund will ensure that these students are able to attend Champlain without the added worry of where their next meal or warm clothing will come from.

Champlain’s Achievement, Retention and Excellence scholarship is designed to help students succeed and thrive. C.A.R.E. incorporates the best research on college retention and success to create a program that helps ensure students’ potential for success. The program focuses on mentoring, community building, grit and identity development, academic skill building, and of course, loads of fun.

Designed for students from our partner high schools, and students who self-identify as students of color or new American, it is beneficial to all students, regardless of how well they did in high school. C.A.R.E. mentees are guided by a success system whereby they earn points for activities such as meeting with their mentors, study hours, academic coaching sessions, and approved Champlain, UVM or Saint Michael’s events. Types of support through the C.A.R.E. program may include:

  • Academic support and structure
  • Mentoring
  • Developing non-cognitive variables
  • Providing horizon expanding opportunities
  • Developing a positive identity
  • Developing the capital needed to succeed in college

This permanent fund was established in 2007 as a tribute to Champlain’s distinguished Accounting faculty who, at the time the fund was established, had annually over 200 collective years of experience. The scholarships awarded from this fund assist accomplished accounting students.

Support-A-Student scholarships are often the deciding factor in whether or not a student is able to pursue his or her educational goals. This vital program helps fill in the gap for students who have exhausted all other financial resources, including federal and state education loans, family contributions and jobs.

Champlain College has created a need-based scholarship program that gives Vermonters broader access a bachelor’s degree. This scholarship provides financial assistance to qualified “first-generation” college students—those whose parents did not attend college. Applicants must qualify for admission, plan to enroll as a full-time, undergraduate student, and be eligible for the Pell Grant Program. The Vermont First Scholarship is renewable for a student’s four years at Champlain.

The Single Parents Program helps low-income single parents get a postsecondary education in which they acquire marketable skills that will ultimately allow them to become more financially independent. One of Champlain’s longest standing assistance programs, in addition to tuition scholarships, the program provides on-site advocacy and counseling to students trying to balance child-rearing, a full academic curriculum and often financial challenges far beyond traditional students.

This is need-based scholarship for Vermont’s refugee or asylum students. Recipients must qualify for admission and enroll as full-time students. The scholarship is renewable for four years. This will be achieved through a review of family financial status, grant eligibility, and New American

Champlain College is providing a significant tuition waiver for veterans who qualify for assistance under the Yellow Ribbon Program provision of the Post–9/11 GI Bill. This new education benefit, (also known as Chapter 33 benefits), provides eligible veterans with financial assistance up to the cost of tuition and fees, not to exceed the most expensive in-state undergraduate tuition at a public institution of higher learning in the state they are attending school. Additionally, as a participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, Champlain is entering into an agreement with the Veteran’s Administration (VA) to fund tuition costs ABOVE the highest in-state undergraduate tuition rate. This agreement will allow Champlain College’s additional tuition assistance to then be matched by VA benefits, resulting in free tuition for qualifying veterans.

The Office of International Education supports the College’s goal to ensure that our students graduate prepared to be globally engaged citizens with international experience and global perspective. We know that students with international experience are getting higher paying jobs and have greater opportunities for career advancement. Our philosophy is to integrate international education into all aspects of the student experience through the curriculum, study abroad opportunities, foreign language, campus and community programming, internships and service learning.

In the Spring of 2015, Professor Jay McKee retired from Champlain College and left a legacy of excellence and dedication to his students. Jay steadfastly embodied Champlain’s mission and vision, he mentored others, including faculty and students and helped them understand the profound impact of a Champlain education. Now it is our time to appropriately honor his career in perpetuity. To honor Jay and say thank you, a former student and long-time friend, Susan Willey LaMaster ‘88, P ’09 & P ’15 and her husband, Thomas LaMaster P ’09 & P ’15 have made a generous pledge of $50,000, as a challenge to help us reach our goal of $100,000, to fund an endowed merit scholarship. You can be part of this special tribute and at the same time make a difference in the life of a student.
