The Institute is pausing the 2024 AIHP PhD Research Support Grant program to reevaluate it for the futureThe pause will take place for one year, during which time the AIHP will evaluate its overall grant-making operations to align with its mission and current activities. Please check back for further updates or subscribe to AIHP social media channels for announcements.

The AIHP PhD Research Support Grant Program is designed to provide financial support for doctoral students pursuing academic research related to the broadly defined history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals. The Program offers grants up to $2,000 to cover research expenses not normally covered by the student’s university.

The Program is open to all PhD students enrolled in a university based in the United States, regardless of department or discipline. The student need not be an American citizen; nor does the research topic need to be in the field of American history. The research must be clearly and significantly related to the history of pharmacy or pharmaceuticals, broadly defined.

Use of grant funds is restricted to direct research expenses that cannot normally be reimbursed by the degree-granting institution itself. Examples of eligible expenses include: travel and living expenses at a site removed from the home university to pursue or conduct research and actual investigative or research costs (such as costs incurred to collect, compile, record, and process data or information and costs incurred to obtain or secure access to essential sources). Examples of ineligible expenses include living expenses of the applicant at the home university or indirect expenses such as overhead or other institution-related costs.
