TASA’s Precarious Work Scholarship Fund (PWSF) was established in 2018 and is funded by TASA. The scholarships aim to support participation at TASA annual conferences by those academics or applied sociologists who find themselves in casual or fixed term work conditions. Precarious work is defined for these scholarships as non-standard employment characterized by sub-standard work benefits. This broad definition has been further clarified to include the criteria of holding casual positions or a fixed term contract of no more than six months.
