Mentoring Grant and Positions Available

We are pleased to announce that the Cambodia Oral History Project was recently awarded a Brigham Young University “Mentoring Environment Grant (MEG)” for the year 2017. The Office of Research & Creative Activities sponsors these annual grants to facilitate undergraduate work with faculty on research, field studies, or creative projects. This grant, along with a generous anonymous private sector grant in 2016, will allow us to expand collection of interviews by involving more students in the process. We now have approximately 220 interviews that need transcription, translation, and editing. If you are interested in volunteering–––whether it be for one interview or many––please contact our volunteer coordinator.

In addition to the volunteer opportunities, there are several position opportunities for current Brigham Young University students:

  1. Webmaster.

Web development and maintenance; Knowledge of Word Press preferred, but we will consider training if you have technical aptitude and related skills. Knowledge of Khmer helpful.

  1. Technical editor

Video/audio editing and technical enhancement; Managing digital archive; Video sub-titling.

  1. Transcription/Translation Assistant
