The Virginia Center for Civil War Studies offers research grants, in conjunction with Virginia Tech’s Special Collections, providing honoraria to enable researchers to visit Special Collections and conduct Civil War-related research.
We are no longer accepting applications for 2018-19 grants. We expect to offer the grants again for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please check back in early 2019 for next year’s application.
