Funding for Canadian Historians of Health and Medicine

We are fortunate in Canada to have both generalized awards and targeted funding for researching topics related to the history of health and medicine, with AMS Healthcare as our main source of support across all stages of our academic careers. Learn about AMS Healthcare and the values behind their work in health history.

This section of the website sets out funding options available for students at different stages of their careers who are interested in the history of health and medicine, broadly defined. We also provide links to a handful of places where emerging and established scholars can look for research grants new to them or interdisciplinary in scope. If you have information about other secure, ongoing sources of support available to the CSHM/SCHM community, please send details to Megan Davies ( and we will share them on our website.
