Each year the East Texas Historical Association presents its Ottis Lock Awards and Research Grants at it Fall Meeting, which for 2015 will be held from October 8-10, 2015 at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. Two of those awards should be of interest to your faculty and students. The first of those is the Educator of the Year, a monetary award (determined by the Ottis Lock decision committee) that honors an outstanding professional in the field of higher education each year. The second of those are our research grants. A number of research grant awards involving East Texas history will be made annually, usually in amounts of $500 to $1000. Applications will be accepted on our form, and should include name, address of the researcher (with biographical data), the purpose for which the funds would be spent, a general statement of anticipated benefit and uses.

The Association encourages you to nominate one of your faculty members for the Educator Award, and also asks you to urge anyone within your department conducting research pertaining to Texas history, with preference given to East Texas topics, to apply for a research grant. You or your colleagues can find the application forms at the following addresses:
