Newberry Library Fellowship in the Humanities

Newberry Library Fellowships provide assistance to researchers who wish to use our collection. We promise you intriguing and often rare materials; a lively, interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators, librarians, and other scholars; and an array of both scholarly and public programs.
For more information, visit our website:
The deadline for Short-Term Fellowships is January 15, 2015.

Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, or those who hold other terminal degrees. Unless otherwise noted, applicants must live and work outside of the Chicago area. Applicants must have a specific need for the Newberry’s collection and are required to spend the tenure of the fellowship in residence. The length of a Short-Term Fellowship is one continuous month, but scholars who have an extensive need for the collections may request up to two months. The stipend is $2,500 per month.

New Fellowship Opportunity!

The John Rylands Research Institute Exchange Fellowship

This fellowship provides two months of support, one for work at the Newberry and another for work at the John Rylands Library in Manchester, England. The proposed project must link the collections of both libraries; applicants should plan to hold the two fellowships sequentially to ensure continuity of research. All application materials should be submitted to the Newberry, but applications will be reviewed by both institutions. The stipend is $2,500 per month at the Newberry, £1,500 at the John Rylands Library, plus an additional $1,000 (or the equivalent in English pounds) for travel.

All applicants are strongly encouraged to consult the Newberry’s online catalog and collection guides before applying:
