The Newberry is pleased to announce its Long-Term and Short-Term Fellowship awards for 2017-18. We will support 11 long-term and 46 short-term fellows, with funds coming from Newberry endowments, grants, gifts, and consortia, as well as partnerships with other institutions and scholarly organizations.
The Newberry Fellowship program provides scholars the opportunity to extensively use our collections in a supportive environment. Often, fellows make exciting finds, develop new interpretations, and deepen their contextual understandings.
Fellows also participate in a lively community of scholars, including other fellows, curators, librarians, and our research centers, focused on advancing our understanding of the humanities.
If you are interesting in applying for a fellowship for next year, please visit our website for more details and opportunities.
