Center for Research on Vermont - Student Awards for Vermont Research


2012 Bryan and Nuquist Awards Guidelines

DEADLINEMarch 15, 2012  Note: The Award Committees would appreciate if students planning to enter the 2010 competition would submit letters of intent to the Center by February 15, 2012. Subsequent Note: A letter of intent is NO LONGER REQUIRED.

Along with providing reference services to Vermont researchers, educators, and the public, the Center constantly seeks new ways to promote and facilitate Vermont research. One such innovation, begun in 1982, is the Nuquist Award, a statewide competition to encourage excellence in undergraduate research on Vermont topics. Named in  memory of UVM Political Science Professor Andrew E. Nuquist and cosponsored byVermont Life Magazine, this award is offered annually for a project exemplifying outstanding undergraduate treatment of a Vermont theme. In 1997 the Center inaugurated an award in memory of George B. Bryan (1939–1996), Professor of Theatre and former Director of the Center for Research on Vermont, for excellence in student research on Vermont as exemplified in a one-semester course project.
