Fellowships of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars to support research on the history of medicine using library resources in New York City. Fellowships are awarded directly to the individual applicant and not to the institution where he or she may normally be employed. The Klemperer Fellow is expected to spend at least four weeks in New York City, working at The New York Academy of Medicine.
The Paul Klemperer Fellowship in the History of Medicine supports research using NYAM library resources for scholarly study of the history of medicine. It is intended specifically for a scholar in residence at the NYAM Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health. Fellows are required to present a seminar at NYAM, to contribute a post for their blog, and to submit a final report on work done at the NYAM Library by the end of the award period.
