Fellowship: American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Everyone!

Dr. Hale, our Exec VP, stopped by to see me this morning and bring me this good news.  After a hiatus of two years, the History Fellowship has been re-funded.  Please see below for more information on the fellowship.  You can access additional information and an application form on the History Library web page.  Please let anyone you think might be interested in applying know that it has been re-funded.

FELLOWSHIP IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists sponsors one $5,000.00 fellowship in the History of American Obstetrics and Gynecology each year. Junior Fellows and Fellows are encouraged to apply. Award monies will be used to cover travel and living expenses. The recipient of the fellowship spends one month during the award year in the Washington DC area working full-time to complete their specific historical research project. Although the fellowship will be based in the College History Library, the Fellow is encouraged to use other national, historical, and medical collections in the Washington DC area to supplement research done in the History Library and Resource Center. The results of this research must be disseminated through either publication or presentation at a professional meeting.

Applications and further information about the fellowship can be obtained by contacting:
