Graduate Student Support

Each year, the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies provides fellowships, TA-ships, RA-ships, or other means of financial support to graduate students pursuing labor studies in the departments of History and Political Science at the University of Washington. Support is provided to incoming students as part of their admission offers, or through faculty members associated with the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies.

Current graduate students in all University of Washington departments are also eligible for the Bridges Center's Individual Graduate Research Grant program.

How to Apply

Prospective students with an interest in labor studies, when applying to the departments of Political Science or History at the University of Washington, should elaborate on their interest or background in Labor Studies in their statements of intent.

In addition, prospective students are encouraged to review the list of the Bridges Center's Faculty Associates in the Departments of History and Political Science and contact faculty whose scholarship reflects the students' interests.
