Dear Moderator,

The Newberry Library would like to post the following to your listserve.

Thank you,

The Newberry’s fellowships support humanities research in our
collections.  Our collections are wide-ranging, rich, and sometimes a
little eccentric.  If you study the humanities, chances are good we have
something for you.  We promise you remarkable collections; a lively
interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on
your research with staff curators, librarians, and scholars; and an
array of scholarly and public programs.


These awards support research and writing by scholars with a doctorate.
  Their purpose is to help fellows develop or complete larger-scale
studies that draw on our collections, and to foster intellectual
exchange among fellows and the Library community.  Fellowship terms
range from six to eleven months with stipends of up to $50,400.

Long-term applications are due January 11, 2010

Major long-term fellowship funding is provided by the National Endowment
for the Humanities, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Dr. Audrey


Ph.D. candidates and scholars with a doctorate are eligible for
short-term travel-to-collections fellowships.  Their purpose is to help
researchers study specific materials at the Newberry that are not
readily available to them elsewhere.  Short-term fellowships are usually
awarded for a period of one month. Most are restricted to scholars who
live and work outside the Chicago area.  Stipends are $1600 per month.

NEW:   We invite short-term fellowship applications from teams of two or
three scholars who plan to collaborate intensively on a single,
substantive project.  The individual scholars on a team awarded a
fellowship will each receive a full stipend of $1600 per month.  Teams
should submit a single application, including cover sheets and CVs from
each member.

Short-term applications are due March 1, 2010.

We also offer exchange fellowships with British, French and German
institutions, a fellowship for American Indian women pursuing any
post-graduate education, and a fellowship for published independent
