Application deadline: June 12, 2017
The Martha H. Duggan Fellowship, offered through the UW Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies, may be awarded to any graduate student who has demonstrated academic merit in any field as long as her or his work has a focus on labor. Preference for the award shall be given to graduate students committed to researching or serving those who provided caring labor, or who themselves have provided caring labor or assisted partners or other family members in gaining advanced education.
The fellowship winner must demonstrate high academic achievement and be enrolled at the UW for the upcoming Autumn Quarter. The fellowship has a value of $10,000 to be applied to tuition costs or provide support for living expenses, books, fees, and other educational expenses. The fellowship must be used within two years of receiving the award and while the student is still active at the University of Washington.
The Duggan fellow will be asked to assist the Bridges Chair in maintaining the focus on caring labor as a visible and ongoing part of the Center’s program. This might involve the identification and invitation of an important speaker in this field, or it may involve developing an activity (such as a conference or workshop) where scholars, practitioners, and/or activists who are concerned with caring labor can meet and exchange ideas. Additional funds may be available from the Bridges Center to be used by the Duggan fellow in these pursuits.
