Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies Research Grants for Graduate Students

Application Deadline: February 8, 2021

  • For UW graduate students
  • Research topics on work, workers, and their organizations
  • Grants up to $5,000

The Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies currently seeks applications from University of Washington graduate students for grants of up to $5,000 for research about work, workers, and their organizations. The purpose of these grants is to provide funding for research expenses. A broad range of expenses can be covered, including travel costs and living expenses while traveling. These grants are generally not intended to cover everyday living expenses; however, for applicants whose research does not require travel outside of the Puget Sound area, it may be appropriate to give a grant as a stipend to cover local living expenses.

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