Grant Scheme due 30 June 2016

The Lizzie Russell Oral History Grant Scheme


Purpose

This grant scheme aims to foster small  oral  history  initiatives in South Australia.  Oral  History Australia South Australia/ Northern Territory wishes to support, assist and help develop oral  history  projects in this State. 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 history. We encourage all prospective oral  historians to join our Association so that we can help fulfill these objectives.
