The Organization of American Historians (OAH) awards two grants of $10,000—one for an advanced Ph.D. student or early-career scholar, and the other for a mid/later-career scholar—to support research in The Visiting Room archive, a collection of over 100 filmed interviews with incarcerated individuals at the Louisiana State Penitentiary Angola who are serving life sentences without the possibility of parole.

The objective of these grants is twofold: to facilitate scholarly engagement with The Visiting Room archive, and to support scholarly output that contributes to a number of historical fields including carceral studies, race and ethnicity, gender, economics, and civil rights.
