Fellowships at the Newberry provide support for researchers who wish to use our 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.
The Newberry also offers many special awards and fellowships which carry specific requirements. To learn more, see Eligibility and Application Information and Apply for Fellowships. Applicants with individual questions regarding eligibility or other matters should read this information carefully before addressing questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 255-3666.
