The Mary Louise Nickerson Fellowship allows a scholar to carry out research in the history of neurology using the Neuro History archival and artifact collections at the Osler Library, the Montreal Neurological Institute, and the McGill University Archives, the centrepiece of which is the Dr. Wilder Penfield Archive in the Osler Library.
Terms: Value varies depending on the project, to a maximum of $10,000. More than one fellowship may be awarded during each fiscal year. The fellow is required to carry out research in Montreal during the 2014-15 fiscal year (May 2014-April 2015). May be renewable.
Requirements: We invite applications from a variety of researchers, including graduate students, independent scholars, and professionals. Preference will be given to applicants spending at least one month in Montreal to take advantage of the rare and unique materials held at the Osler Library and McGill University. Fellows will be required to submit a report of their work suitable for publication in the Osler Library Newsletter and may be requested to give a brief presentation at the university.
How to Apply: Applicants should fill in the application form available on the website. Applicants must also submit a CV, a detailed project proposal and arrange for two letters of recommendation, as described in the application. Electronic submissions are preferred. Please send all documentation attached to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Files should have the name of the applicant, Nickerson, and the year (e.g. Smith_Nickerson_2013_application).
