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
- outline a viable and original research project in the field of Australian labour history, and
- 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.
