Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2009-2010

The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago, Illinois,
invites applications for its 2009-2010 Fellowships in the Humanities. Newberry
Library fellowships support research in residence at the Library, and all
proposed research must be appropriate to the collections (excluding the Terra
Foundation Fellowship and certain short-term awards). Our fellowship program
rests on the belief that all projects funded by the Newberry benefit from
engagement both with the materials in the Newberry's collections and with the
lively community of researchers that gathers around those collections. Long-term
residential fellowships are available for periods of six to eleven months to
postdoctoral scholars who must hold the Ph.D. at the time of application. The
stipend for these fellowships ranges from $25,500 to $70,000. In 2008-2009 the
Library inaugurated a new Terra Foundation for American Art Fellowship in Art
History carrying an academic-year stipend of $70,000 for a full professor (or
its equivalent outside the academy) and $50,400 for all other awardees.
Short-term residential fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scholars or
Ph.D. candidates from outside the Chicago area who have a specific need for
Newberry collections. The tenure of short-term fellowships varies form one week
to two months. The amount of the award is generally $1600 per month.
Applications for long-term fellowships are due January 12, 2009; applications
for most short-term fellowships are due March 2, 2009. For more information or
to download application materials, visit our website.

Awards, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago, Il 60610-3380. If you have questions
