The Canadian Association for the History of Nursing (CAHN-ACHN) invites applications for the Margaret M. Allemang Scholarship for graduate students (Masters or PhD level) studying in the field of nursing history. Preference will be given to candidates studying Canadian nursing history. Students must be enrolled at a recognized centre for the study of the history of nursing in Canada or the United States, or in a university department of history or women’s studies, or study with a recognized Canadian nurse historian. Application forms and instructions are available online at http://cahn-achn.ca/awards/, and must be accompanied by proof of current enrollment and a proposal outlining the study to be completed.
The Canadian Association for the History of Nursing (CAHN-ACHN) also invites applications for the Vera Roberts’ Endowment (VRE). The VRE provides funding to qualified investigators for historical research and publication of topics related to outpost nursing or nursing in remote areas with priority given to circumpolar regions (defined as “North of 60 degrees parallel” for Canada). Eligible applicants include graduate and post-doctoral students, established researchers in nursing history, and persons with informal experience in historical research.
Application forms for both are available at http://cahn-achn.ca/awards/ and must be accompanied by a detailed proposal, curriculum vitae, and all other necessary documents. Please refer to the Guidelines for Nursing History Proposals.
Applications must be submitted electronically by March 31, 2021. Questions and completed applications can be sent to Dr. Margaret Scaia, University of Victoria at [email protected]
