Agnodike research travel fellowship

The Commission on Women and Gender Studies in Science, Technology and Medicine of the DHST offers biannually a research travel fellowship up to 1000€ to scholars who are either in their final stages of their doctoral research or in the early stages of their post-doctoral research but still within four years of receiving the Ph.D. The research fellowship named by the first female physician and midwife in ancient Greece (4th c. B.C.) is intended to recognize and support the work of scholars who are in the early stages of their careers and assist those who need to travel to archives in order to complete their research.

The Commission requires an application consisting of a cover letter, a research proposal, CV, and two letters of recommendation, one being from the PhD advisor. The awardee of the research grant will receive an invitation to present her/his work in the closest forthcoming symposium organized by the Commission. All applications must be submitted no later than May 31, 2014. The applications are considered by a Committee which gives preference to specific and clearly described projects.

The Commission on Women and Gender Studies in Science, Technology and Medicine was founded in 1981 by the General Assembly of the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science. The aim of the Commission is to promote communication among scholars working on women’s history in science, technology and medicine and also to foster research on the relation of gender and science, technology, and medicine. One of the Commission’s tasks is to hold meetings between Congresses of the IUHPS/DHST and to form symposia at subsequent International Congresses.
