Virginia TU announces grant opportunities for 5 Rivers Clubs

5_rivers_logoThe Virginia Council of Trout Unlimited (VCTU) is offering small grants of up to $500 for qualifying 5 Rivers Clubs at Virginia colleges and university.

The 5 Rivers Program promotes TU’s mission on college and university campuses around the country. Clubs are formed in partnership with local TU chapters, who serve as advisors and partners to the students. The clubs teach students fly casting and fly tying and also provide volunteer stream conservation activities on the members’ home waters.

The VCTU grants are meant to encourage the growth and development of 5 Rivers Clubs in Virginia.  All 5 Rivers clubs at Virginia colleges and universities are eligible for these grant funds and may submit proposals for funding to VCTU through a Small Grants Program established for 2015.
