The application for The Jack Henning Graduate Fellowship in Labor Culture and History for 2013-2014 is now available.
Posted On: Jan 17, 2013

This fellowship has been established to honor the life and work of Jack Henning, San Francisco labor leader, statesman, and tireless champion of all working people.

Purpose:
To encourage innovative study of the problems, identities, philosophies, and – particularly – the expressive cultures of working people in the United States.

Eligibility:
Graduate students (Master’s and Ph.D. candidates) enrolled in an accredited California university undertaking research related to laborlore, labor history, occupational folklife, trade union traditions, and/or workers’ expressive culture, all broadly defined.

Applicants may be from any relevant discipline, including but not limited to Anthropology, Art, Communication Studies, Cultural Studies, English, Ethnic Studies, Folklore, Geography, History, Labor Studies, Literature, Sociology, Urban Studies, and Women’s Studies.

We are especially interested in supporting graduate students who are exploring important, innovative topics related to the lives of working people that may fall outside of the parameters of traditional academic research and funding.

Award:
A stipend of $5,000 will be provided for the academic year 2013-2014. The award recipient will be expected to submit a progress report at the end of the field research and a final report when the thesis/dissertation is completed.

To Apply:

I. The written proposal, of no more than 1500 words, describing a field-based research project that focuses on some aspect of workers’ lives shall include:

a. the research question and methods
b. a discussion of the significance of this project
c. a projected timeline
d. an estimated budget
e. a preliminary bibliography

II. Applicant’s CV and a listing of other awards, scholarships, and funding sources, applied for and/or received, if any.

III. A letter of recommendation from the thesis or dissertation committee chair.

These should be sent via US mail (electronic submissions will NOT be accepted) to:

Archie Green Fund for Labor Culture and History
Jack Henning Graduate Fellowship
224 Caselli Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94114
