Description

Fellowships at the Newberry provide support for researchers who wish to use the Newberry collection. The Newberry administers annual competitions for both Short-Term Fellowships of one to two months and Long-Term Fellowships of four to twelve months. Most short-term fellowships are restricted to individuals who live outside the Chicago area and are primarily intended to assist researchers who need to examine specific items in the Newberry’s collection. Long-term fellowships are generally available without regard to an applicant’s place of residence and are intended to support significant works of scholarship that draw on the strengths of the Newberry’s collection. Particular collection strengths include: American History and Culture; American Indian and Indigenous Studies; Chicago and the Midwest; Genealogy and Local History; History of the Book, Manuscripts and Archives; Maps, Travel, and Exploration; Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies; Music; and Religion.

Please visit the website for more information about available opportunities funded through Newberry Fellowships. There are 11 long-term fellowships and 23 short-term fellowships, all with varying award amounts, eligibility requirements, and some variation in deadline. In general, the deadline for long-term fellowships is in December and the deadlinee for short-term fellowships is in January. However, this does vary for some awards!
