The Baylor University Institute for Oral History invites individual scholars with training and experience in oral history research who are conducting oral history interviews to apply for support of up to $3,000 for one year (June through May). With this grant, the Institute seeks to partner with one scholar who is using oral history to address new questions and offer fresh perspectives on a subject area in which the research method has not yet been extensively applied. Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural research on local, national, or international subjects is welcome.
The Charlton Oral History Research Grant honors Dr. Thomas L. Charlton, founder of the Institute for Oral History, whose vision for innovative oral history research still inspires its mission. The Institute for Oral History is an interdisciplinary research entity of Baylor University administered through the provost's office. Since 1970, the Institute has gathered and preserved oral history, while providing leadership and service for the profession.
Applications will be accepted through January 27, 2023. For more information, visit the Baylor University Institute for Oral History website.
