Fellowships for the study of the history of medicine and the biological sciences have been established by the Josiah Macy, Jr., Foundation, New York.Full-time fellowship grants of up to $10,000/year will be made to individuals working at US or Canadian institutions. Proposed research should involve a problem of historical development of the medical sciences, or the social consequences of such development.The awards are training fellowships and are not designed to support research projects of established scholars, a foundation announcement stated. It is hoped that a better understanding and broad interpretation of medical science history may help demonstrate to future physicians the relationships between medicine and society, and enhance the physician's role in the future social complex.Awards will be made to MD's and PhD's who are under age 40. Fellowships are renewable for a total of three years.Persons interested in further information should contact the
