Karen Lou | Jul 5, 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 History of Medicine Fellowships at The New York Academy of Medicine.

Criteria

The Audrey and William H. Helfand Fellowship in the History of Medicine and Public Health

The Helfand Fellowship supports research using Academy library resources for scholarly study of the history of medicine and public health. It is intended specifically for a scholar in residence at the Academy Library. While all proposals will be thoroughly considered, preference will be given to applications that include an emphasis on the use of visual materials held in the Academy collections and in other area institutions.

The New York Academy of Medicine invites applications from anyone, regardless of citizenship, academic discipline, or academic status. Preference will be given to (1) those whose research will take advantage of resources that are uniquely available at the Academy, (2) individuals in the early stages of their careers, and (3) applications which include an emphasis on the use of visual materials held within the Academy’s collections and elsewhere. Applicants should provide information in their proposals about the collection items they plan to use, either by including a bibliography of resources they intend to consult or discussing those items in detail in the context of the application essay.

The Paul Klemperer Fellowship in the History of Medicine

The Klemperer Fellowship supports research using the Academy Library's resources for scholarly study of the history of medicine. It is intended specifically for a scholar in residence at the Academy Library.
