Alice Fisher Society Research Fellowship


The Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing offers a fellowship of up to $3,000 to support research and ongoing collaboration with Center historians. Selection of Alice Fisher Society fellows will be based on evidence of interest in, and aptitude for, historical research related to nursing and healthcare. The scholarships are open to those with mastersÔÇÖ and doctoral level preparation. It is expected that the research produced by Alice Fisher Society scholars will help ensure the growth of scholarship focused on the history of nursing and healthcare. Fisher fellows will participate in Center activities, provide a brief written summary of their research and, if feasible, will present their research at a Center seminar. We are grateful to the Alumni of the Philadelphia General Hospital School of Nursing, who established this fellowship. Recipients of the award from international institutions must comply with U.S. State Department, University of Pennsylvania, and School of Nursing regulations.
