National Life Stories, the oral history charitable trust based at the British Library, has announced applications are now open for the National Life Stories Goodison Fellowship 2018-19. The aim of the Fellowship is to increase public knowledge and awareness of oral history, particularly of the National Life Stories collections.

The award of £5,000 is open to anyone resident in the United Kingdom who wishes to use the National Life Stories oral history collections to reflect on life stories and memory, and share the results of their research in the public domain. Past Fellows have used the award to produce a series of radio programmes, stage an exhibition, produce articles and present at conferences.

The National Life Stories Goodison Fellowship provides the recipient the time and space to listen in-depth to oral history material from across the collections. The award holder will become the Goodison Fellow for a period of three to nine months, subject to agreement with the Awarding Panel. The Fellowship must commence in the period 1 February 2018 – 1 November 2018. The award will be made in two payments of £2,500.

Further details on applying for a Goodison Fellowship can be found on British Library website.

The closing date for applications is midnight on Monday 20 November 2017.
