Fellowships at the Newberry provide support for researchers who wish to use our collection. The Newberry’s Core Collection concerns the civilizations of Western Europe and the Americas from the late Middle Ages to the twenty-first century. Particular collection strengths include: American History and Culture; American Indian and Indigenous Studies; Chicago and the Midwest; Genealogy and Local History; History of the Book; Manuscripts and Archives; Maps, Travel, and Exploration; Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies; Music; and Religion.
Long-term fellowships are restricted to postdoctoral scholars (except the École Nationale des Chartes Exchange Fellowship). Most short-term fellowships are open to PhD candidates and postdoctoral scholars.
Long-term fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars who want to be in residence at the Newberry for periods of four to twelve months. The stipends for these fellowships are $4,200 per month; awardees must indicate in their applications how many months they intend to be in residence at the Newberry. Applicants may combine these fellowship awards with sabbatical or other stipendiary support.
With the exception of our exchange fellowships and NCAIS graduate fellowships, all Newberry fellowships are residential and continuous. Fellows must work at the library full-time throughout the tenure of the fellowship, without major interruptions.
