We invite students doing an honours or postgraduate thesis of at least 10,000 words to apply for a $1,000 grant to do research at the Noel Butlin Archives Centre (NBAC) based at ANU in Canberra.
The NBAC is the largest non-government archives in Australia, and holds an unrivalled collection of trade union and business records, along with the personal papers of many left wing and labour movement activists.
The Eric Fry Labour History Research Grant was established in 2004 to assist promising students with an interest in labour or social history to overcome the financial obstacles to doing research in Canberra. The ASSLH administers the grant and makes the payment to the successful applicant. The grant honours the memory of Dr Eric Fry (1921-2007), an ANU historian and founding member of the ASSLH in 1961.
AuSI is proud to sponsor the Eric Fry Labour History Research Grant.
Applications for the Eric Fry Research Grant usually close each year on 31 March.
