UAB History of Medicine Fellowship Announcement
The Historical Collections (HC) unit of Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham, announces Reynolds Associates Research Fellowships in the History of the Health Sciences for 2013. In conjunction with the unit’s friends group, the Reynolds Associates, HC is pleased to announce the availability of short-term awards of up to $1,000 to individual researchers studying one or more aspects of the history of the health sciences during the 2013 calendar year.
Intended to support research using the HC unit as a historical resource, the fellowship requires the on-site use of at least one of the unit’s three components, which are the Alabama Museum of the Health Sciences, Reynolds Historical Library and UAB Archives. Anyone who wishes to use HC for historical research may apply, regardless of his or her academic status. Fellowships are awarded to individual applicants, not to institutions, as awarded funds are meant to help offset the costs associated with visiting and utilizing HC and not for institutional overhead.
Information about the fellowship application process can be found on the web at http://www.uab.edu/reynolds/fellow. The application deadline is December 31, 2012, and awards will be announced by February 28, 2013.
