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 most fellowships). Most fellowships are available for one month with a stipend of $2,500 per month. Graduate student applicants for short-term fellowships must be ABD by the December 15 deadline.
