For forty years, the Baylor University Institute for Oral History has worked with communities throughout the state to better record, archive, and present their history. In 2010, the institute is launching a new annual grant program to facilitate community oral history work throughout the state of Texas. The institute will make available a number of $2,500 grants to support nonprofit groups conducting oral history research at the community level. Baylor University will partner with recipients in their efforts and provide training, equipment, consultation, and processing of the field interviews, which will be made available online as well as co-deposited at Baylor University and a local public archive. The community members who carry out the oral history projects will also develop and arrange public programming to highlight the accomplishments of their endeavors. The deadline for applications for this grant is January 15, 2010. Baylor's website offers additional details on this new and exciting initiative.
