Fellowships & Mentorships
For over 30 years the Barbara Bates Center has offered fellowships to support historical research in nursing and health care.
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. Please find a general description of the Center’s fellowships below:
- The Karen Buhler-Wilkerson Faculty Research Fellowship provides up to $5,000 of support to faculty from all disciplines from colleges and universities, based on evidence of preparation and/or productivity in historical research and/or teaching related to nursing.
