Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, or those who hold other terminal degrees and who live and work outside of the Chicago Metro area. Most fellowships require residency at the Newberry and are intended to support individual scholarly research. Additionally, applicants must have a specific need for the Newberry’s collection. Some Short-Term Fellowships are open to other categories of applicants and Chicago residents, so please read the descriptions below carefully in order to determine your eligibility. 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 months of support.
