The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress is now accepting applications for the David B. Larson Fellowship in Health and Spirituality. The application deadline is April 17, 2014.
The Larson Fellowship is a post-doctoral fellowship for advanced research in the field of health and spirituality. Made possible by a generous endowment from the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality (ICIHS), the fellowship is named in honor of the Center's late founder, David B. Larson, an epidemiologist and psychiatrist, who focused on potentially relevant but understudied factors which might help in prevention, coping, and recovering from illness. The fellowship is designed to continue Dr. Larsonís legacy of promoting meaningful, scholarly study of these two important and increasingly interrelated fields. It seeks to encourage the pursuit of scholarly excellence in the scientific study of the relation of religiousness and spirituality to physical, mental, and social health.
Conducting full time research on-site at the Library of Congress, the fellowship provides an opportunity for a period of 6 to 12 months of concentrated use of the collections of the Library of Congress, through full-time residency in the Library's John W. Kluge Center. A stipend of $4,200 per month supports the Fellow.
