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 6.850-€. (as of March 2014).Most awards range between 250€ to 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.

Scholarship application deadline: 15 December2013

Consideration will be given only to those whose proposals for inclusion in the
conference program have been accepted. (See the conference website for more information:http://2014iohacongress.wordpress.com and the IOHA website:http://www.iohanet.org/index.php/en/conferences/forthcoming-conferences

The IOHA Scholarship Committee will send out notification letters by 15 January 2014 to all applicants whose application has reached us before the deadline.In order to receive an award, those selected must submit their final abstracts and papers by the published deadline and present their papers in person at the conference in Prague.

The deadline for receipt of the final paper is April 30, 2014.The final confirmation of
IOHA Scholarship Award will depend on the submission of your paper. Any offer we make will be withdrawn if you do not submit your final paper.

Early submission of final paper is strongly advised, as this may prove helpful as you try to secure your visa. Applications for a visa should generally be submitted at least five months in advance of your planned date of travel.

Criteria for Scholarship Award:
Only applicants who have submitted and had their paper proposal accepted for
presentation will be considered for scholarship. We support scholars whose research and professional interests demonstrate a good record of oral history work, whose paper proposal shows strong relevance to oral history, who are able to show how their
international exchange will benefit oral history in their region or subject-area, and who successfully establish strong financial need.

The following priorities are considered in determining scholarship awards (in at random order):
1. Applicants from developing and economically-poorer nations
2. Applicants from geographical areas under-represented in IOHA
3. Independent scholars from developed nations with proven financial need
4. Promising new and younger scholars
5. Those who have never attended any IOHA Conference
6. Those who have not traveled to any international or out-of-country conference in the last three years
7. Those who did not receive a scholarship for the last IOHA meeting (in Buenos Aires, 2012).

Please know that funds are limited. We may not be able to support all scholars who
fulfill the qualifications listed above. We will, however, make every attempt to support qualified applicants.
