National Life Stories, the oral history charitable trust based at the British Library, is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the National Life Stories Goodison Fellowship 2015.  The aim of the Fellowship is to increase public knowledge and awareness of oral history, particularly of the National Life Stories collections. This 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.

The National Life Stories Goodison Fellowship will provide 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 six months, subject to agreement with the Awarding Panel. The Fellowship must commence in the period 1 January 2015 – 1 August 2015 and finish by 31 December 2015.
