About this funder:



The George L. Disborough Trout Unlimited Research Grant Fund was established by Kalamazoo Valley Chapter Trout Unlimited in 1990 using a generous donation from the estate of one of KVCTU’s founders, George Disborough. The purpose of the Fund is to recognize and support studies of trout habitat or other projects consistent with the goals and objectives of KVCTU, which include preservation of wild rivers, cleaning up polluted waters, maintaining early warning Water Quality Surveillance programs, education of the public through workshops and seminars, and speaking for the concerns of all anglers and conservationists.

The Fund pursues these goals through support of masters or doctoral level research studies of trout habitat or other projects consistent with the Trout Unlimited goals to preserve, protect, and enhance cold-water resources.
