Long-Term, Short-Term, and Teacher Programs Fellowships, the Newberry Library

Newberry fellowships provide support for researchers who wish to use our collection. We promise you intriguing and often rare materials; a lively, interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators, librarians, and other scholars; and an array of both scholarly and public programs. The Newberry administers annual competitions for both Long-Term Fellowships of 4 to 12 months and Short-Term Fellowships of 1 to 2 months.



Short-Term Fellowships are primarily intended to assist researchers who need to examine specific items in the Newberry’s collection and are mostly restricted to individuals who live outside the Chicago area. Long-Term Fellowships are generally available without regard to an applicant’s place of residence and are intended to support significant works of scholarship that draw on the strengths of the Newberry’s collection.



The Newberry also offers many special awards and fellowships which carry specific requirements. To learn more about these requirements, please visit How to Apply. Applicants with individual questions regarding eligibility or other matters should read this information carefully before addressing questions to research@newberry.org or (312) 255-3666.



Teacher Programs Fellowships are administered by the department of Professional Development Programs for Teachers. Please visit their page for more information.
