Deadline: Nov. 15, 2023
The Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma is pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2023 Phil Ochs Fellowship, a partnership between the Woody Guthrie Center Archives and A Still Small Voice Inc. This research fellowship awards up to $5,000 for creative or scholarly projects about the life and work of Phil Ochs, and his lasting legacy and influence on popular culture, politics, and music.
The Woody Guthrie Center is home to the Phil Ochs Archive, donated in Sept. 2014 by Ochs’s daughter, Meegan Lee Ochs. The collection includes a rich array of original lyrics, handwritten travel journals and notebooks, personal belongings, photographs, and audio and film recordings. Additionally, Phil Ochs’s siblings, Michael Ochs, and Sonny Ochs donated additional Phil Ochs–related collections to the Woody Guthrie Center in 2015 and 2018, respectively. Together these collections comprise more than 80 linear feet of archival materials related to the life of the folk singer and topical songwriter.
The Phil Ochs Fellowship is intended for in-person research in the Phil Ochs Archive and related archives at the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Research must be completed within one calendar year of the award date, and projects must be published, produced, or otherwise completed within three years of the award date.
