The Newberry – Chicago’s Independent Research Library.
Long-term fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars who want to be in residence at the Newberry for periods of four to twelve months. Applicants for postdoctoral awards must hold a PhD at the time of application (unless otherwise noted).
These grants support individual research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the Newberry’s scholarly activities, including a biweekly fellows’ seminar. The stipends for these fellowships are $4,200 per month; awardees must indicate in their applications how many months they intend to be in residence at the Newberry.
Applicants may combine these fellowship awards with sabbatical or other stipendiary support. Scholars may apply for any of the long-term fellowships using the same application. Each fellowship has specific eligibility requirements.
Preference is given to applicants who have not held major fellowships for three years preceding the proposed period of residency.
