Long-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars who wish conduct research at the Newberry; applicants for long-term opportunities must hold a PhD by the application deadline, which is November 15. Long-Term Fellowships are intended to support individual scholarly research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the Newberry’s scholarly activities, including fellows’ seminars and the weekly colloquium. Stipends for Long-Term Fellowships are $4,200 per month.

The Audrey Lumsden-Kouvel Fellowship is designed for postdoctoral scholars who wish to use the Newberry’s extensive holdings in Late Medieval and Early Modern History and Literature. Preference will be given to projects focusing on Romance cultures, including work that draws on sources from the colonial Americas. Topics in Portuguese, Spanish, and Latin American Studies are especially welcome, as are translation projects. Recent recipients of PhDs are encouraged to apply. Applicants must request at least four and no more than six months of support.
