New Research Award Coming in 2025!

CRVT's mission is to encourage and promote Vermont research while building a robust network of scholars committed to diverse perspectives. To meet this mission, next year, we will launch a new Vermont History Award to fund scholars and practitioners engaged in Vermont-related research and original work. The award will prioritize early and mid-career scholars and practitioners, acknowledging their outstanding achievements to springboard their current project. To celebrate our 50th Year, we will honor scholars undertaking ambitious, challenging projects that advance critical topics in Vermont history. Stay tuned to learn about new opportunies we are creating to advance greater understanding of Vermont history and learn more about our existing opportunities below.
