Newberry’s Long-Term Fellowship Program

The Newberry Library’s long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library’s collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.

Applications for the Newberry’s Long-Term Fellowship Program must be submitted by 11:59 PM CST on November 15. These long-term opportunities are available to postdoctoral scholars for continuous residence at the Newberry for periods of 4 to 9 months; the stipend is $4,200 per month. Applicants must hold a PhD by the application deadline in order to be eligible. Long-Term Fellowships are intended to support individual scholarly research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the fellowship program.
