Grant Scheme

The Lizzie Russell Oral History Grant Scheme


This grant scheme aims to foster small oral history initiatives in South Australia and the Northern Territory and is open to financial members of Oral History Australia SA/NT.

Oral History Australia South Australia/Northern Territory wishes to support, assist and help develop oral history  projects in these states. The grant scheme is funded by sales of the Oral History Handbook by Beth M. Robertson.

We hope that the scheme fills a gap left by the closure of many federal and state funding options and helps revive an important means of recording South Australia’s and the Northern Territory’s history.  We encourage all prospective oral historians to join our Association so that we can help fulfil these objectives.

Please submit completed application forms by 30 June, 2018. E-mail submissions to the SA/NT Association’s email address contact@oralhistoryaustraliasant.org.au attention June Edwards.
