In addition to the standard support available for all researchers, scholars residing in Brazil, India and South Africa and working in medical humanities and the history of medicine are eligible for additional support, generously provided by the Wellcome Trust.
Awards will be made this summer for research to be undertaken once travel can resume.
The Consortium comprises 27 educational and cultural institutions using their exceptional resources to promote academic and public understanding of the history of science, technology and medicine.
The Consortium offers rich opportunities for research. Taken together, its collections of rare books, manuscripts and artifacts are unparalleled in historical depth and breadth. The Consortium also provides a vibrant, challenging and collegial community. Fellows participate in public and scholarly events, as well as informal reading and writing groups.
