NEK Audubon Announces Scholarship Opportunity

The trustees of NEK Audubon, based in St. Johnsbury, announced that four Airie Lindsay Scholarship Fund awards will be offered to local schoolchildren to allow them to attend science camp at Maine's Acadia Institute of Oceanography (AIO) during the summer of 2013. The deadline for application is March 1.

The scholarships support students between the ages of 10 and 15. AIO's Introductory and Intermediate sessions provide hands-on, fun, science-based exploration of the marine environment. In 2013 NEK Audubon will offer two introductory and two intermediate places.

"For several years we have been awarding scholarships to Northeast Kingdom youth," said Tom Berriman, NEK Audubon chapter President, "allowing them to experience science in a stimulating environment that also typically leads to new friendships and an appreciation for nature's challenges, variety, and beauty."

The fund was established in honor of passionate birder and past NEK Audubon President Airie Lindsay, who died in 2008.

Interested families can find the Airie Lindsay Scholarship Fund application form at, as well as a link to the website of the Acadia Institute of Oceangraphy. Anyone wishing additional information is welcome to contact NEK Audubon trustee Bill Marshall (, 748-2066).
