The Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs provides awards up to $1,000 to support travel to the Reuther Library to access archival records related to the American labor movement. Recipients are selected through an annual competitive application process and awards may only be used to reimburse actual expenses. As part of their research visits, awardees are invited to speak about their work at an informal event at the Reuther Library, be interviewed for our podcast series “Tales from the Reuther Library,” or submit a proposal for the North American Labor History Conference held on the Wayne State University campus in the fall. Recipients are required to submit a two-page research report and expense report within one month of the conclusion of their research visit, and must complete their research within one year.
