The IOHA Conference/Master Class Scholarship Fund

For each international conference the IOHA is able to provide small grants for a limited number of participants.

The IOHA Conference/Master Class Scholarship Fund aims to bring together international oral history scholars from inside and outside the academic realm, to continue building a unique global platform for professional exchange and comparative oral history inquiry.

IOHA Conference/Masterclass Grants take the form of financial support for travel costs, master classes fees or conference fees.

This time the maximum grant is Euro 750 (about US$1000.00 as of March).

Most awards range between Euro 250 to Euro 500.

The grant is a supplement; applicants are advised to start looking for funds from other sources as soon as they determine their intention to participate.

The following priorities are considered in determining scholarship awards.

  • Applicants from developing and economically-poorer nations
  • Applicants from geographical areas under-represented in IOHA
  • Independent scholars from developed nations with proven financial need
  • Promising new and younger scholars
  • Those who have never attended any IOHA Conference
  • Those who have not traveled to any international or out-of-country conference in the last three years
  • Those who did not receive a scholarship for the last IOHA meeting (in Guadalajara).

    Deadline: 15th November
