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.

Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees. Short-Term Fellowships are generally awarded for 1 to 2 months; unless otherwise noted the stipend is $3,000 per month. These fellowships support individual scholarly research for those who have a specific need for the Newberry's collection. The deadline for short-term opportunities is December 15.

H-Maps readers will be particularly interested in the Arthur and Janet Holzheimer Fellowship in the History of Cartography which supports scholars working on projects related to the history of cartography or projects focusing on cartographic materials in the Newberry’s collection.
