Newberry Library Short-Term Fellowships

Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees. Most fellowships are available to those who live and work outside of the Chicago metropolitan area. The deadline for all short-term opportunities is December 15.

Short-Term Fellowships are intended to support individual scholarly research for those who have a specific need for the Newberry’s collection.

The tenure for a Short-Term Fellowship is one continuous month, but scholars who have an extensive need for the collections may request up to two continuous months of support. Unless otherwise noted, the stipend is $2,500 per month.
