Academic Innovation & Program Support

The Gallery space within the Center for Communications and Creative Media showcases innovative forms of art including digital, spoken word, video game and music. The space rotates exhibits every two to three weeks, displaying works by students and faculty, as well as regional, national and international guest artists.

We believe this new type of cultural programming enriches the students' experience and supports our ability to attract globally curious students.

Leahy Center for Digital Investigation (LCDI)

Center for Service & Sustainability (CS&S)

The Center for Service & Sustainability's mission is to provide the encouragement, resources and support that allow our students, faculty and staff to connect with the community—on local, national and global levels—through leadership, service, mentorship, partnership, reflection and dialogue.

Emergent Media Center (EMC)

Scholarships

Support-A-Student Scholarship

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 the gap for students who have exhausted all other financial resources, including federal and state education loans, family contributions, and jobs.

Vermont First Scholarship

Champlain College has created a need-based scholarship program that gives Vermonters broader access to higher education. This scholarship provides financial assistance to qualified "first-generation" college students--those whose parents did not attend college.

Study Abroad Scholarship

The Office of International Education supports the College's goal to ensure that our students graduate as engaged citizens with international experience and a global perspective. The Study Abroad Scholarship makes it possible for all interested and qualified students to have an international experience regardless of financial circumstances.

Single Parent Scholarship

The Single Parents Program helps low-income single parents get a post-secondary 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. Find out how the Single Parents program has changed student lives.

Yellow Ribbon Program and Veterans Scholarship

Champlain College provides a significant tuition waiver for veterans who qualify for assistance under the Yellow Ribbon Program provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill. 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.

New American Student Scholarship

The New American Scholarship is a need-based scholarship for Vermont's refugee or asylum students.

Accounting Excellence Endowed Scholarship

This permanent fund was established in 2007 as a tribute to Champlain's distinguished Accounting faculty. The scholarships awarded from this fund assist accomplished accounting students.

Game Developers Conference Student Scholarship

Each year, a number of Champlain College Game Studio seniors attend the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. This conference provides an opportunity for students to connect with Champlain alumni, interact with leaders in their chosen field, and network with potential employers. Any student who has attended will tell you that its impact is meaningful, concrete, and lasting. Attending GDC carries a hefty ticket price so we have established a scholarship fund that will allow us to offset the cost for the program's most outstanding seniors.

Other Initiatives

Student Angel Fund

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.

BYOBiz

The BYOBiz (Bring Your Own Business) program encourages our student-entrepreneurs to develop and run their own businesses while earning their degrees. The program serves as a learning laboratory for growing fledgling concepts and start ups into viable companies.

Center for Financial Literacy (CFL)

A partnership between several Vermont financial institutions and Champlain College, the CFL hopes to increase financial literacy in classrooms across Vermont, ensure college students graduate with the skills to make sound decisions about spending, credit and investments, and help adults navigate difficult financial situations like buying a home and saving for retirement. The Center will also advocate for more financial education opportunities at the local, state and national level.

BREAKAWAY Game

BREAKAWAY is an initiative to prevent violence against women and girls that combines a community-led educational model with an engaging and socially impactful video game known as BREAKAWAY. By hosting educational youth camps and training facilitators, the BREAKAWAY team strives to impact attitudes and behaviors regarding violence against women and girls in order to create environments of gender equity, personal safety, mobility, and equitable decision-making power.

Green Revolving Fund

The mission of the Champlain College Green Revolving Fund is to encourage environmentally sound technologies and practices on Champlain’s campus. The GRF will finance innovative projects that reduce the College's environmental impact, improve the educational environment, and generate financial returns while engaging students, staff, faculty, and administrators in the decision-making and implementation process.
