The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago, Illinois, invites applications for its 2009-10 Fellowships in the Humanities. These fellowships support research (in residence at the library) that is appropriate to the collections.
- Long-term residential fellowships are available for periods of six to eleven months to postdoctoral scholars who must hold the PhD at the time of application. The stipend for these fellowships ranges from $25,500 to $70,000.
- The Terra Foundation for American Art Fellowship in art history, begun in 2008-09, carries 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 PhD candidates from outside the Chicago area who have a specific need for Newberry collections. The tenure of short-term fellowships varies from one week to two months. The amount of the award is generally $1,600 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 the fellowship page on the Newberry Library web site.
