Call for Applications: Stella Nord Bursary

Purpose The bursary honours Stella Nord (1920 – 2009), a worker and campaigner whose writings reflected her commitment to the labour movement. Mindful of Stella’s example, the BLHA wishes to assist emerging or established researchers whose circumstances make it difficult for them to carry out a labour history project. The BLHA undertakes to provide to the successful applicant:
  • a grant of up to $1000
  • mentoring on historical research and writing if required
Applications Apply by completing the form available from brisbanelabourhistory.org and sending the form and any accompanying documents to the Stella Nord Bursary Administrator at:-  blha.bursary@gmail.com or PO Box 5299 West End QLD 4101   Applicants will
  1. outline a viable and original research project in the field of Australian labour history, and
  2. explain how the bursary would alleviate the circumstances which limit their opportunities for undertaking historical research; for example, by assisting travel to relevant archives and libraries or by defraying costs of oral history recording.
The project should be completed within 18 months, and the results will be presented in a format agreed to by the BLHA. Presentation formats may include but are not limited to a journal article, a talk at a BLHA event, or an audio-visual work suitable for online publication. Applications will close on 31 August 2021. The successful applicant will be notified by 31 October. More information available at brisbanelabourhistory.org.
