Grant of the Week: Newberry Library Short-Term Fellowships

Karen Lou | Aug 27, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Newberry Library Short-Term Fellowships .

Criteria

The Newberry's long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. Fellows have access to the Newberry's wide-ranging and rare archival materials as well as to a lively, interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. The Newberry Library expects recipients to advance scholarship in various fields, develop new interpretations, and expand our understandings of the past.

The Newberry Library Short-Term Fellowships provide opportunities for individuals who have a specific need for the Newberry's collection. Postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and scholars with terminal degrees who live and work outside of the Chicago metropolitan area are eligible.

Amount

Most fellowships are available for one month with a stipend of $2,500 per month. Awardees may combine their Newberry fellowship award with sabbatical funding or other stipendiary support. Fellows are welcome to stay in residence at the Newberry beyond the terms of their fellowship, but the amount of their stipend cannot be increased beyond the initial award.

End: December 15, 2019.
