The CCLH Graduate Student Dissertation Award is designed to support archival and library research that will contribute to a thesis on a Canadian labour and working-class history topic up to a maximum of $2000. Award holders must have completed all elements of their degree programme except for their thesis. They must be a registered student at a Canadian university. If successful, students will be expected to join the CCLH.
If you are a Masters or Doctoral student researching a Canadian labour and working-class history topic for your dissertation, please see the CCLH website for further detail on how to apply for the award. If you are supervising students carrying out research in Canadian labour and working-class history, please pass on details of the award programme.
On presentation of final receipts you will also be expected to provide the CCLH with a 250-350 word report on the activities supported by this award, detailing how this will contribute to your thesis research. The report will be published on the CCLH website. Full payment of the award will not be made until this short report and receipts have been submitted and accepted. The report may have to be revised if not considered sufficiently detailed before the funds can be released. You are also asked to acknowledge the financial support of the CCLH in your dissertation and subsequent publications arising from it.
