For over 30 years the Barbara Bates Center has offered fellowships to support historical research in nursing and health care at the University of Pennsylvania. It is expected that the research and new materials produced by our scholars will help ensure the growth of scholarly work focused on the history of nursing and healthcare.
- The Lillian Sholtis Brunner Fellowship for Historical Research in Nursing offers up to $5,000 to support pre- and post-doctoral students studying the history of nursing.
- The Alice Fisher Society Fellowship offers up to $5,000 to support scholarship in the history of nursing. The Fisher Fellowship is open to those with masters’ and doctoral level preparation.
