Short-Term Fellowships provide opportunities for individuals who have a specific need for the Newberry’s collection. Postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and scholars with terminal degrees who live and work outside of the Chicago metropolitan area are eligible. For exceptions to these restrictions, please read the individual fellowship descriptions listed below.
Most fellowships are available for one month with a stipend of $2,500 per month. Awardees may combine their Newberry fellowship award with sabbatical funding or other stipendiary support. Fellows are welcome to stay in residence at the Newberry beyond the terms of their fellowship, but the amount of their stipend cannot be increased beyond the initial award.
Graduate student applicants must be ABD by the December 15 deadline.
