Thursday, March 28, 2013
The Oral History Association is offering two opportunities for practitioners:
1. The Oral History Association Emerging Crisis Research Fund Grant
The OHA supports grants of up to $4,000 to undertake oral history research in situations of crisis research in the United States and internationally. These funds may be applied to travel, per diem, or transcription costs for research in places and situations in which a longer application time schedule may be problematic. Such crisis situations include but are not limited to wars, natural disasters, politics and or economic/ethnic repression, or other currently emerging events of crisis proportions. For more information, go to www.oralhistory.org/award/emerging-crisis-research-fund/.
The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2013. Applications should be formatted in Microsoft Word and sent electronically by April 1 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. The Oral History Association Awards
The OHA recognizes outstanding achievement in oral history through a series of awards. These awards honor individuals and organizations in the following categories: publications, non-print media, projects, and teaching.
The deadline for awards submissions is April 17, 2013. For more information about nominations go to www.oralhistory.org/award/.
