More Info:

The Newberry Library’s long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library’s collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment. We invite interested individuals who wish to utilize the Newberry’s collections to apply for our many fellowships.


Long-Term Fellowships are intended to support individual scholarly research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the Newberry’s scholarly activities, including Fellows’ Seminars and Weekly Colloquium. These residential fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars for 4 to 9 months with a stipend of $5,000 per month. Applicants must hold a PhD by the November 1 deadline.
