AMS Project Grant

The AMS History of Medicine Project Grant is designed to support small budget proposals on projects in the history of medicine and allied disciplines, including (but not limited to) science and technology studies, sociology, anthropology, and classics. AMS defines the history of medicine broadly as the study of past practices and epistemologies related to human health, healthcare and disease using a variety of historical and critical methodologies. Projects that consider the Canadian context are particularly welcome. Projects might include requests for seed money to develop research initiatives. Proposals are expected to advance the history of health, healthcare or disease or the education of health professionals that could benefit the broader community of practitioners in the field. There is an expectation that during the period of these grants or within a year of their completion, one or more conference papers or publications/presentations will result from this funding.

The fellowships are intended for emerging scholars to complete work already started on projects featuring the study, analysis, and interpretation of past practices, philosophies, and/or epistemologies related to human health, health care, and/or disease or the education of health professionals, or to begin a new project in the field.
