The Challacombe Research Travel Grant is endowed through the generosity of friends of Elaine Challacombe in recognition of her outstanding service as the former curator of the Wangensteen Historical Library.

The Challacombe Research Travel Grant is available to historians, physicians, graduate and post-doctoral students, and to those interested in the arts and humanities of medical history whose work requires them to travel to Minneapolis/St Paul to consult material in the Wangensteen Historical Library.

Applicants should email wanghist@umn.edu to request the Challacombe Research Travel Grant Application form and return the application via email (preferred), or mail it along with a CV to the address specified below.

Applications are considered by a committee which gives preference to specific and clearly described projects.

The applications period for 2015 is now closed. Please check back in February 2016 for information on our 2016 round.

Requests for further information should be addressed to:
