In addition to their existing travel and residential fellowships, they are thrilled to announce that the Linda Hall Library is partnering with the Clendening History of Medicine Library at the University of Kansas Medical Center to offer a new History of Science and Medicine Fellowship. This fellowship will support a doctoral student whose research examines the intersecting histories of those two disciplines. The History of Science and Medicine fellow will spend one month in Kansas City during the 2020-21 academic year conducting research at both libraries.

All Linda Hall Library research fellows participate in a vibrant intellectual community alongside scholars from nearby libraries and universities, including the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), the University of Kansas (KU), and the Clendening History of Medicine Library. Fellows are also welcome to attend the Library’s lectures and public programs featuring scholars from around the world.

All application materials are due no later than January 17, 2020. For further information, please visit or e-mail
