The NLM Michael E. DeBakey Fellowship in the History of Medicine provides up to $10,000 to support on-site research in the historical collections of the National Library of Medicine, which span ten centuries, encompass a variety of digital and physical formats, and originate from nearly every part of the globe. The collections include the Michael E. DeBakey papers—representing the diverse areas in which DeBakey made a lasting impact, such as surgery, medical education, and health care policy—along with the papers of many other luminaries in science and medicine.
Anyone over the age of eighteen, of any academic discipline and status, who has not previously received this Fellowship may apply. Non-US citizens may apply. Group applications should be submitted under the name of a single principal researcher.
