Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of up to $1,200 to USA individuals for historical research related to the State of Vermont. Priority will be given to research projects that address under-researched topics in Vermont's history and that involve a specific library or museum collection located in Vermont.

The fellowship is expected to result either in a paper that can be considered for publication in the Vermont History journal or in a product of some other form, which might be appropriate for exhibition or viewing. The fellowship does not guarantee that award recipients will be published in Vermont History.

The research contemplated by the applicant must stand by itself. Because the Society's purpose is to encourage worthwhile original research in Vermont's history that might not otherwise be undertaken, segments of larger studies may be at a competetive disadvantage.
