Job type: fellowship

Application deadline: January 15, 2015


The Lloyd Library and Museum is pleased to announce the call for submissions for the next round of Research Fellowships, effective for the 2015-16 academic year.  This will be the 3rd year the Library has offered this program for researchers, who must have at least a BA/BS degree to qualify.

The Fellowship is named for the youngest Lloyd brother of Lloyd Brothers, Pharmacists, Inc. (1885-1936), Curtis Gates Lloyd, who ultimately took the company’s Library under his wing and helped grow it into the largest medicinal botany library in the western hemisphere.

  • Medicinal Botany (Including non-Western medical traditions)
  • Organic/Botanical/Medicinal Chemistry
  • Natural History
  • Early travel and exploration
  • Ethnobotany
  • History of Science, Medicine, Pharmacy (including Alchemy)
  • Pharmacognosy/Natural Product Development
  • Visual Arts
  • Cultural, Ethnic, and Social history

Past awardees have completed projects in the fields of botany, history – exploration and plant, sociology, and art (covering a wide array of visual topics).  To read more about the program and projects, visit http://www.lloydlibrary.org/fellows.html.
