About 

In our ongoing efforts to support excellence in labor studies, the Bridges Center awards an average of $100,000 or more a year to students and faculty at the University of Washington.

Annual scholarships and fellowships support students passionate about the study of labor and labor activism, while our Best Paper Prize honors quality scholarship on labor issues produced by students. When our students graduate, many go on to work in the labor movement, or continue on in the academy as teachers and scholars.

Labor Studies research grants support graduate students and faculty in advancing knowledge and paving the way for social change. Since 1992, the Bridges Center's grants have contributed to the publication of over 100 books and articles.
