U.S. citizens or permanent residents with a legal right to work in the
United States who are engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or

William Andrews Clark Library, Charles E. Young Research Library
Department of Special Collections, and University Archives.
The award commemorates the work of Charles D. O'Malley, Ph.D. (1907-70),
the Vesalian scholar and first full-time chair of the Department of
Medical History at UCLA. O'Malley pioneered the study of the history of
medicine at UCLA and facilitated its growth.
