Blog: IOHA Scholarship Awards Available


XVIIIth International Conference
“Power and Democracy: The Many Voices of Oral History”
9th – 12th July 2014
Barcelona – Spain

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: 1 December 2013

Consideration will be given only to those whose proposals for inclusion in the conference program have been accepted. (Submission for conference paper proposals is due by July 15, 2014.) See the conference website for more information:  
and the IOHA website:

The IOHA Scholarship Committee will send out notification letters by 1 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 Barcelona.  .

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 Any offer we make will be withdrawn if you do not submit your final paper.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.
