Newberry Library Fellowships provide support 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.


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.


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.
