Vermont Historical Society (VHS)

Deadline Date:

05/31/22

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Fellowship of $1,200 to a USA individual for research projects about the history of the state of Vermont. Funding is intended to support original research and writing that culminates in a product, such as an article or essay. Proposals that address topics designed to fill research gaps in the state's history are favored.

The Vermont Historical Society awards a fellowship every other year to encourage research in Vermont history. The grantee is expected to complete research and writing on his or her topic within the period of the fellowship. A final product, normally an essay or research article, is expected at the conclusion of the fellowship period.

Criteria:

  • In making the fellowship award, the Committee will favor applications that address topics designed to fill research gaps in the state's 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.
  • Strong preference will be given to applications that cite specific VHS museum or library collections to be used in project research.
  • 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.
