AMS History Grants and Fellowships – Applications now Available!

AMS is proud to provide Grant and Postdoctoral Fellowships in the history of medicine, adjudicated by the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation. 

The AMS Project Grant is designed to support small budget proposals on projects featuring the history of medicine. AMS defines the history of medicine as the study, analysis, and interpretation of past practices, philosophies, and/or epistemologies related to human health, health care, and/or disease using methods appropriate to the discipline of History. Projects that consider the Canadian context are particularly welcome. Projects might include requests for seed money to develop research initiatives. Proposals are expected to advance an aspect of the history of health, health care or disease or the education of health professionals that could benefit the broader community of practitioners in the field. There is an expectation that during the period of these grants or within a year of their completion, one or more conference papers or publications/presentations will result from this funding.

The AMS Postdoctoral Fellowship provides support to a core of the most promising researchers at a pivotal time in their careers. Candidates should be embarking on a period of full time post-PhD degree studies and wish to add to their experience by engaging in research in Canada or abroad. The fellowships are intended for emerging scholars to complete work already started on projects featuring the study, analysis, and interpretation of past practices, philosophies, and/or epistemologies related to human health, health care, and/or disease or the education of health professionals, or to begin a new project in the field.
