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
