OPPORTUNITY: Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities 2014-15
If you study the humanities, the Newberry has something for you!
Newberry fellowships provide assistance to researchers who wish to use our collection. We promise you intriguing and often rare materials; a lively, interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators, librarians, and other scholars; and an array of both scholarly and public programs.
Applicants may apply for both long- and short- term fellowships within one academic year.
We begin accepting applications September 1, 2013.

An applicant must hold a PhD at the time of application to be eligible for a long-term fellowship.
These fellowships support serious intellectual exchange though active study and participation in the Newberry's activities, including regular seminars for discussion of scholarly research.
Long-term fellowships range from 4-12 months, with stipends of $4,200 per month.
