Graduate Student Travel Grant Program

In 2010, the Society introduced its Graduate Student Travel Grant Program in order to induce and encourage graduate students of history and the health sciences to explore work in our area of particular interest – the history of navy or maritime medicine. Funded by the tax-deductible dues-donations of Society members (and in 2010 by an especially generous gift from Rear Admiral Fred Sanford, Medical Corps, U S Navy, Retired), Grants of up to $850 are given to students whose papers are selected for presentation at the Society’s Meetings and Papers Sessions. The Society presently attempts to annually rotate the panels between the American Association for the History of Medicine (of which the Society is a Constituent Society), the North American Society for Oceanic History, and either the Society for Military History or the U S Naval Academy biennial McMullen History Symposium.


2015: Mr Zack Mason- to give a paper on the Society’s panel at the North American Society for Oceanic History meeting in Monterey, California.

2011: Paola A Chiappacasse, Raed Moustafa, Cori Convertito-Farrar and Andrew C. Rath – to give papers on the Society’s panel at the McMullen Naval History Symposium, Annapolis, Maryland

Interested graduate students or students of medicine, nursing or allied health sciences should contact the Society’s Executive Director, Captain Tom Snyder, MC, USN (Ret.) at
