History Fellowship Application Information

FELLOWSHIP IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists sponsors one $5,000 fellowship in the History of American Obstetrics and Gynecology each year. Fellows, Junior Fellows, and women's health history scholars are encouraged to apply. Award monies will be used to cover travel and living expenses. The recipient of the fellowship spends the equivalent of one month (140 hours) during the award year in the Washington DC area working to complete their specific historical research project. Although the fellowship will be based in the College's Resource Center, the Fellow is encouraged to use other national, historical, and medical collections in the Washington DC metropolitan area to supplement research done in the Resource Center and Special Collections. The results of this research must be disseminated through either publication or presentation at a professional meeting.
