The Southern Oral History Program offers two competitive undergraduate awards ($2500 each) for students at UNC Chapel Hill. The 2021 application period has closed. Check back in late winter 2022 for the next submission round.

Plambeck Award

The Plambeck Award supports summer funding for work on an oral history project. The proposed project must align with the standards of the SOHP’s work and mission. Proposals should outline how interviews will be conducted and a timeline for the project. Interviews will be considered for deposit in SOHP’s collection at the Southern Historical Collection in the Wilson Special Collections Library.

Vogel Award 

The Vogel Award provides funding for a student who wishes to spend the summer working with SOHP. This student will assist with organizational duties including but not limited to: transcription, collection processing, archival research, and dissemination. The student will work 10-15 hours per week at the SOHP for 10 weeks.
