One fellowship of $250-$500 is awarded annually to individuals whose research in the Southern Labor Archives will lead to a book, article, dissertation, or other substantive product. In return, recipients will make a presentation about their research to the Georgia State University community within one academic year after receiving the award.
The Southern Labor Archives, established in 1971, is dedicated to collecting, preserving and making available the documentary heritage of Southern workers and their unions, as well as that of workers and unions having an historic relationship to the region.
The fellowships honor Dr. Merl Reed, professor, scholar and founder of the archives, for his many contributions to education and labor history.
Faculty members, graduate students, upper-level undergraduates, and recognized independent scholars and artists are encouraged to apply.
To be considered for the 2008 Merl E. Reed Fellowship in Southern Labor History, the application and other required documentation should be submitted on or before November 30, 2007.
