Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies Scholarships

Deadline for all awards: June 13, 2011


Each year, the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to students at the University of Washington who exhibit a commitment to labor/social justice research or practice, or are pursuing a career in labor relations.

This year, we are excited to offer at least four scholarships to undergraduate students, each worth $5,500.

The Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies seeks proposals from University of Washington graduate students for grants of $1,500-$2,500, for research about work, workers, and their organizations.

Research may focus on any dimension of labor in the United States or abroad, including but not limited to class relations, the social conditions of work, the labor process, working-class culture or politics, work and gender, work and race/ethnicity, the relationship between labor and the state, unions, or comparative international labor relations.

Applicants must demonstrate the significance of their proposed research to the interdisciplinary field of labor studies. Proposals must indicate how the research is likely to generate important new information, interpretations, scholarly resources, and contributions to the applicant's field.
