The Osler Library Research Travel Grant is endowed through the generosity of graduates of the Class of Medicine of 1936, and is supported by the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University.
The Osler Library of the History of Medicine at McGill University sponsors a travel grant, designed to assist scholars who need to travel to and establish temporary residence in Montreal in order to use the resources of the Library.
The grant is available to historians, physicians and to those interested in the arts and humanities of medical history. It carries an award of $1,500 (Canadian), and must be held from 2-4 weeks during the calendar year of 2014. $2,000 will be made available to those requiring 4 weeks to complete their research.
Applicants should fill in the Osler Library Travel Grant Application Form and send it to the address specified.
The applications are considered by a Committee which gives preference to specific and clearly described projects. The deadline for the 2013 grant applications has already passed. Applications for the 2014 grant must be received by December 31, 2013. Candidates will be informed of the results early in 2014.
