Calling oral historians who are researching emerging disasters: The Oral History Association is awarding a grant of up to $3,000 to an oral historian chronicling a crisis in the United States or 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, political and or economic/ethnic repression, or other currently emerging events of crisis proportions.
Applications should be formatted in Microsoft Word and sent electronically by
May 1, 2011, to: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>
