Vermont Humanities


Group on tour in snowy Burlington

To better support public humanities work across Vermont, we have exponentially grown the amount of money we distribute to Vermont non-profits and other organizations through our grants programs.

In 2023, we funded 54 Project Grants projects totaling $246,250. We also funded 38 Rapid Response Grants totaling $36,100, almost double that of 2022.

We encourage 501(c)(3) public charities, government entities, schools, and/or institutions of higher education to apply for a Vermont Humanities grant.

Other groups may apply through a non-profit organization that agrees to act as a fiscal agent and to accept responsibility for meeting the terms of the grant award.

To learn more about our grants programs, email Richelle Franzoni or fill out our Grant Inquiry Form.

Attendees at Abenaki Teacher Training session, 2017

These exhibits, teacher trainings, and panel discussions are powerful ways of engaging with the Vermont community. We have been pretty much overlooked in Vermont’s history, so these events have brought us a lot of self-esteem and pride.
