The COLBY AWARD and NU MILITARY WRITERS’ SYMPOSIUM
are signature events of the NU Peace & War Center.
THE COLBY AWARD recognizes a first work of fiction or nonfiction that has made a major contribution to the understanding of military history, intelligence operations, or international affairs.
A $5,000 author honorarium is provided to the award winner in partnership with the Pritzker Military Museum & Library and through the generosity of the Pritzker Military Foundation. The winning author will receive the award in a ceremony at Norwich University, Northfield, Vt. and will be invited to an appearance at the Pritzker Military Museum & Library in Chicago, Ill.
The Colby is the only program of its kind in existence at an American university.
It has brought some of the most prominent military, intelligence and international affairs writers and historians of our time to central Vermont and Norwich University.
