NLM Welcomes Applications to the 2018 Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine

Posted by on June 8th, 2017 Posted in: Announcements, Funding, Public Health

NLM is pleased to announce its second annual call for applications to the Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine. The NLM Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine supports individuals in pursuing research in NLM’s Michael E. DeBakey archives, related collections held by the NLM, and the vast range of subjects which informed, or were informed by, Michael E. DeBakey’s professional career – from surgery to health care policy, medical libraries and expanding access to medical information, medical technology to medical ethics, military medicine to veteran health, humanitarianism to international diplomacy in the medical arena.

In early 2016, the National Library of Medicine announced its receipt of a generous gift from The DeBakey Medical Foundation to support enhanced access to the Michael E. DeBakey Archives at the NLM and to establish the NLM Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine. With this support, the NLM launched the first call for applications to the fellowship in April 2016 and subsequently named its 2017 DeBakey Fellows, who are now actively working on their research projects involving the NLM’s Michael E. DeBakey archives and related collections. NLM and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) continue their partnership to administer the NLM Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine, and they now invite applications from anyone over the age of eighteen, of any academic discipline and status. Non-U.S. citizens may apply.

Fellowships of up to $10,000 will be awarded to individual applicants, not to institutions, to help offset the costs associated with visiting and using the NLM collections, but may not be used for institutional costs or overhead (e.g. clerical costs, supplies, or other attendant project expenses). To receive consideration, all materials must be submitted via the online application portal, by midnight EDT, September 30, 2017. Awards will be announced by the end of the calendar year.
