The Working-Class Studies Association provides small grants to support low-income, early scholars, and activists in attending our annual conferences.
Grants for 2022
Previously, awards were given through a WCSA “Young Scholars and Activists Fellowship” (YSAF). The YSAFs intent was to support and encourage scholars, activists, and organizers early in their careers whose work has the potential for advancing Working-Class Studies as a field, and to help defray some costs in attending the WCSA Conference.
- Early career status is defined as being a graduate student, in the first year or two of a post-graduation academic job, or in the first year or two of a job as an activist or organizer.
- Awardees will be chosen each year from among those whose conference proposals are accepted for presentation at the Working-Class Studies Association conference.
- Conference attendance is required to receive the fellowship. Recipients will be reimbursed via Pay Pal or an American bank check.
