College announces Holm Visiting Scholar Award

Karyn Holm, PhD, RN, FAAN, FAHA, a distinguished nurse scholar who has served in leadership positions at DePaul University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Loyola University Chicago, and her husband Terrance, have generously established an annual award in honor of their parents.

The award is designed to create opportunities for researchers from across the country and around the world to utilize the Midwest Nursing History Research Center's collections as well as other Chicago-area nursing and healthcare archives. The selected scholar will receive a travel and lodging stipend of up to $1,500.

This generous award has created excitement because the MNHRC archives hold multiple collections worthy of historical analysis and they should be better used. Additionally, the Chicago area is host to rich nursing and healthcare history collections—such as those at Rush University, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and our own Special Collections at UIC—that richly deserve further analysis. This award will enable visiting historians, invariably underfunded, to explore, analyze, and disseminate these holdings.
