For over 20 years the Barbara Bates Center for The Study of the History of Nursing has offered fellowships and research awards of up to $5,000 to support: residence at the Center, ongoing collaboration with nurse historians, and historical research in nursing. 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.

The School of Nursing's Center for Global Health Affairs arranges opportunities for international students and scholars. Individual Bates Center faculty collaborate with US students and scholars in planning and carrying out research projects.
