2011-2012 Newberry Library Residential Fellowships in the Humanities

The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago, Illinois, invites applications for its 2011-2012 Fellowships in the Humanities. Newberry Library fellowships support research in residence at the Library, and all proposed research must be appropriate to the collections. Our fellowship program rests on the belief that all projects funded by the Newberry benefit from engagement both with the materials in the Newberry’s collections and with the lively community of researchers that gathers around those collections.

Long-term residential fellowships are available for periods of six to eleven months to postdoctoral scholars who must hold the Ph.D. at the time of application. The stipend for these fellowships is $25,200 for one semester, and $50,400 for a full academic year. Short-term residential fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scholars or Ph.D. candidates from outside of the Chicago area who have a specific need for Newberry collections. The tenure of short-term fellowships is typically one month, and the stipend is usually $1600 per month.

Applications for long-term fellowships are due January 10, 2011. Applications for most short-term fellowships are due February 10, 2011.
