Newberry Library Humanities Fellowships


The Newberry Library invites applications for their 2010-2011 fellowships in humanities. Ph.D. candidates and scholars need to have long-term fellowship applications in by January 11, 2010 and short-term fellowship applications in by March 1, 2010.

Newberry Library Humanities Fellowships
The Newberry¬πs fellowships support humanities research in our collections.
Our collections are wide-ranging, rich, and sometimes a little eccentric.
If you study the humanities, chances are good we have something for you. We
promise you remarkable collections; a lively interdisciplinary community of
researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators,
librarians, and scholars; and an array of scholarly and public programs.
Long-term fellowships support research and writing by scholars with a
doctorate. Fellowship terms range from six to eleven months with stipends
of up to $50,400. Deadline: January 11, 2010.
Ph.D. candidates and scholars with a doctorate are eligible for short-term
travel-to-collections fellowships. Short-term fellowships are usually
awarded for a period of one month. Most are restricted to scholars who live
and work outside the Chicago area. Stipends are $1600 per month.
NEW: We invite short-term fellowship applications from teams of two or
three scholars who plan to collaborate intensively on a single, substantive
project. $1600 per fellow per month. Teams should submit a single
application, including cover sheets and CVs from each member.
Deadline: March 1, 2010.
