The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America invites scholars who are conducting oral history interviews relevant to the history of women or gender in the United States to apply for support of up to $3,000. This grant stipulates that the interviews take place in accordance with guidelines of the Oral History Association, that consent is obtained from interviewees for their words to be viewed by researchers worldwide, and that true copies or transcripts of the original recording of the oral interviews, as well as copies of the consent forms, be deposited in the Schlesinger Library.
Applicants may request support to cover travel expenses, living expenses (up to $125 per diem), transcription services, and incidental research materials, but not the purchase of durable equipment. Applications will be evaluated on the significance of the research and documentation planned and the project’s potential contribution to the advancement of knowledge. A brief report about work accomplished under the grant will be due no later than one year from the date of the award. Application deadline is commonly in March.
