The Osler Library of the History of Medicine at McGill University in Montreal is now accepting applications for two research travel grants to be taken up between May 2016-April 2017. The Mary Louise Nickerson Fellowship in Neuro History and the Dimitrije Pivnicki Award in Neuro History and History of Psychiatry allow scholars to carry out research with the rich neuro history archival and artifact collections of the library, the centrepiece of which is the Wilder Penfield Fonds, and other relevant collections at the Montreal Neurological Institute and the McGill University Archives. The Pivnicki Award carries a value of up to 4,000$ and the Nickerson Fellowship carries a value of up to 10,000$, depending on the projects proposed. We invite applications from a variety of individuals, including graduate students, scholars, and professionals.
Deadlines are March 1, 2016. Further details and application instructions may be found on the websites above.
