Long-Term Fellowships are intended to support individual scholarly research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the Newberry’s scholarly activities, including Fellows’ Seminars and Weekly Colloquium.
These residential fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars for 4 to 9 months with a stipend of $4,200 per month. Awardees may combine their Newberry fellowship award with sabbatical funding or other stipendiary support. Fellows are welcome to stay in residence at the Newberry beyond the terms of their fellowship, but the amount of their stipend cannot be increased beyond the initial award.
Applicants must hold a PhD by the November 15 deadline.
