Grants: AAHN Grants for Historical Research in Nursing and Health Care History

The American Association for the History of Nursing is currently accepting research grant proposals for its H-15 Grant, designed for faculty members and independent researchers, its H-21 Grant, designed for senior scholars undertaking a new historical research study, and its H-31 Grant, designed to encourage and support graduate training and historical research at the Masters and Doctoral levels. Grant materials must be submitted to grants@aahn.org by April 1, 2021. Proposals are reviewed by the AAHN Research Review Committee. Please visit www.aahn.org/research-grants for full details.

H-15 Grant

The H-15 Grant is awarded to faculty members or independent researchers for proposals outlining a historical research study. The grant provides $3,000 in funding. For faculty members affiliated with an academic institution, indirect costs for Facilities and Administration (F & A) of 8% are also available. Applicants must be AAHN members and hold the research doctorate. It is expected that the research and new materials produced by the grant recipient will help ensure the growth of scholarly work focused on the history of nursing.

H-21 Grant

The H-21 Grant is awarded to senior scholars (faculty members or independent researchers) for proposals outlining a new historical research study. The grant provides $3,000 in funding. For faculty members affiliated with an academic institution, indirect costs for Facilities and Administration (F & A) of 8% are also available. Applicants must be AAHN members, hold a research doctorate, and be the author of a published book in the field of history that is based on original research. It is expected that the research and new materials produced by the grant recipient will help ensure the growth of scholarly work focused on the history of nursing.

H-31 Grant

The H-31 Grant is designed to encourage and support graduate training and historical research at the Masters and research Doctoral levels. The grant awards $2,000. Proposals will focus on a significant question in the history of nursing. Students applying for this grant must be enrolled in an accredited Masters or research Doctoral program and a member of the AAHN. The research advisor will be doctorally prepared with scholarly activity in the field of nursing and health care history, with prior experience in guidance of research training.

American Institute of the History of Pharmacy 2021 PhD Research Support Grants

The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy (AIHP) is now accepting applications for 2021 AIHP PhD Research Support GrantsThe deadline for receipt of applications is March 1, 2021. The AIHP PhD Research Support Grant Program encourages academic research by doctoral candidates on topics related to the (broadly defined) history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals. The Program provides grants of up to $2,000, and AIHP hopes to fund two PhD Research Support Grants in 2021.

The theme for the 2021 AIHP PhD Research Grant Program is “Barriers & Margins.” The fields of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals have often witnessed social, economic, racial, gender, and other barriers that have marginalized certain segments of the population. Many of these stories remain untold. For this year’s grant competition, we particularly encourage applications from students pursuing historical projects that engage with race, colonialism, gender, or inequality as they relate to social or cultural reconfigurations in pharmacy, pharmaceutical fields, and the adjacent health disciplines.

Recipients can use grant funds to cover research-related costs and expenses that are not reimbursed by the researcher’s university.

Grant winners must provide a brief report to AIHP about their grant-funded research one year after receiving the grant money. Within two years of receiving the grant, recipients must also agree to submit a manuscript based on their research for consideration for publication in AIHP’s journal, History of Pharmacy and Pharmaceuticals.

AIHP will give special attention to research proposals related to the theme of “Barriers & Margins” in 2021. “Preserving the histories of persons of color, women, and other underrepresented groups in pharmacy is vitally important in the era of Black Lives Matter and #MeToo,” said AIHP Historical Director Lucas Richert, PhD, the George Urdang Chair in the History of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Pharmacy. The theme of “Barriers & Margins” seeks to generate a greater historical discussion about racial justice, health disparities, and marginalized groups in the history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals.

Application details for the AIHP PhD Research Support Grant Program and a list of past grant recipients are available on the Institute’s website.
