Applications Due May 5th for DC Oral History Collaborative Partnership Grants


The DC Oral History Collaborative is an ambitious city-wide initiative to document and preserve the history of Washington’s residents and communities through the collection of oral histories. The project will survey and publicize existing oral history collections, provide grants and training for scholars and amateur historians to launch new oral history projects, and establish an interactive, accessible platform where the city’s memories can benefit residents and scholars for generations to come.


We are currently seeking collaborators to join us in this exciting endeavor. We are offering hands-on support and partnership grants ranging from $2,000 to $8,000 for organizations and individuals that will help us explore Washington, DC’s life, history and culture through interviews with the people who have lived it. More information on the DC Oral History Collaborative is available here.


To learn more about this opportunity, join us for a grant webinar, every Friday at noon until April 28th. You can register now on EventBrite.


Applications are due May 5th, and can be accessed through our grantee portal. For additional information, please contact Jasper Collier at

The DC Oral History Collaborative is managed in collaboration by HumanitiesDC, the DC Public Library, and the Historical Society of Washington, DC.
