Grant of the Week: Zeidler Academic Awards

Karen Lou | Aug 14, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Zeidler Academic Awards.


The Wisconsin Labor History Society (WLHS) is seeking applications for its eighteenth annual Frank Zeidler Academic Awards for original research papers about Wisconsin labor and working-class history. Two awards are available annually: one for work by an undergraduate student and one for work by a graduate student.

The awards honor former Milwaukee mayor Frank Zeidler (in office 1948-1960) for his lifelong efforts toward the advancement of Wisconsin's citizens.

Any research relating to the lives, culture, and organizing activities of Wisconsin working people will be carefully considered. Submissions must be postmarked no later than January 6, 2020. The WLHS will accept entries by authors directly or by faculty nominations. Content from theses or dissertations must be appropriately adapted to article form. Writing guidelines are posted on the WLHS website.


1) For the original, previously unpublished research paper of approximately 4,000-10,000 words produced by an undergraduate student enrolled during 2019 in any college or university (not restricted to those located in Wisconsin or to four-year programs), the cash award is $500.

2) For the original research paper or article of approximately 8,000-16,000 words produced by a student enrolled during 2019 in any graduate program (not restricted to those located in Wisconsin), including law or other professional departments, the cash award is $1,000.

End: January 6, 2019.
