Research Grant: Foundation for the History of Women in Medicine

The Foundation for the History of Women in Medicine will provide one $5000 grant to support travel, lodging, and incidental expenses for a flexible research period between July 1st 2012 – June 31st 2013. Foundation Fellowships are offered for research related to the history of women to be conducted at the Center for the History of Medicine at the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. Preference will be given to projects that deal specifically with women physicians or other health workers or medical scientists, but proposals dealing with the history of women’s health issues may also be considered.

Manuscript collections which may be of special interest include the recently-opened Mary Ellen Avery Papers, the Leona Baumgartner Papers, and the Grete Bibring Papers

(find out more about our collections at
www.countway.harvard.edu/awm<http://www.countway.harvard.edu/awm>).

Preference will be given to those who are using collections from the Center’s Archives for Women in Medicine, but research on the topic of women in medicine using other material from the Countway Library will be considered. Preference will also be given to applicants who live beyond commuting distance of the Countway, but all are encouraged to apply, including graduate students.

In return, the Foundation requests a one page report on the Fellow’s research experience, a copy of the final product (with the ability to post excerpts from the paper/project), and a photo and bio of the Fellow for web and newsletter announcements.

Application requirements

Applicants should submit a proposal (no more than two pages) outlining the subject and objectives of the research project, length of residence, historical materials to be used, and a project budget (including travel, lodging, and research expenses), along with a curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation by April 1st, 2012.  The fellowship proposal should demonstrate that the Countway Library has resources central to the research topic. The appointment will be announced by May 1st, 2012.

Applications should be submitted to:
Foundation Research Fellowships
Archives for Women in Medicine
Countway Library
10 Shattuck Street
Boston, MA 02115

  1. One of the lead characters in my work is a nurse, so I’m glad that they’re included here. Midwives have a fascinating history.
