15 January (short-term)
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.
The tenure of short-term fellowships is one continuous month, unless otherwise noted. Scholars who have an extensive need for use of the collections may request two months of fellowship support. The award is $2,000 per month for most short-term fellowships.
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.
