Grant Alert: Award to Honor Young Women for Social Justice Work
The Berger-Marks Foundation provides financial assistance to women who are engaged in union organizing and to assist working women who want to organize other women into unions through training, research, and other resources.
The foundation is inviting applications for the Edna Award, a new $10,000 award created to honor a young woman leader in the social justice movement who has made an extraordinary contribution early in her career and whose achievements indicate that her work will continue to significantly improve the lives of working women and men.
Young women from labor unions, women's groups, workers' rights groups, and other areas of social justice are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be 35 years of age or younger on December 31, 2011. Women can apply for the award themselves or be nominated by others.
