Applications for TASA 2022 closed on Monday July 4th, 2022. 

About the bursary

The bursary is to honour the work of Professor Jerzy Zubrzycki in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Australian sociology and to public policy in the areas of migration and cultural pluralism. The bursary was established at the suggestion of, and with generous support from, the School of Sociology, Australian National University.


Jerzy Zubrzycki

Jerzy (George) Zubrzycki was born in Krakow, Poland on 12 January 1920. After distinguished war service in Poland and the United Kingdom he undertook studies at the London School of Economics and completed his PhD at the Free Polish University in London. In 1955 Prof. Zubrzycki accepted a post in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University (ANU). He continued to work at the ANU until his retirement in 1986, founding the Department of Sociology in 1970. Jerzy Zubrzycki wrote extensively on immigration and contributed to many government reports and inquiries on immigration and multiculturalism. He was President of SAANZ (the predecessor of TASA) in 1971–72 and he was the first editor of the Association’s journal, the Journal of Sociology. Professor Zubrzycki died in May 2009.
