To support work in history and the humanities as they relate to health, medicine, and the biomedical sciences. The Helfand Fellowship more broadly supports work in the humanities, including both creative projects dealing with health and the medical enterprise, and scholarly research in a humanistic discipline – other than history of medicine – as applied to medicine and health. Although residence is not obligatory, preference in the selection process will be given applicants whose projects require use of the resources of the Academy Library and who plan to spend time at the Academy. Besides completing research or a creative project, each Fellow will be expected to make a presentation at the Academy and submit a final report on the project. We invite applications from anyone – regardless of citizenship, academic discipline, or academic status – who wishes to use the Academy’s collections for historical research or for a scholarly or creative project in the medical humanities. Preference will be given to:
Those who show the need to use resources that are uniquely available at the Academy Scholars or creative artists in the early stages of their careers.
