Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities

Fellowships at the Newberry Library provide assistance to researchers who wish to use their collections, but who cannot finance a visit on their own. Fellowships are of two types: short-term fellowships with terms of one to two months and long-term fellowships of six to eleven months. Short-term fellowships are generally restricted to individuals from outside the metropolitan Chicago area. Long-term fellowships are generally available without regard to an applicant's place of residence. Most fellowships are restricted to doctoral candidates or postdoctoral researchers, although some fellowships are available for other categories of applicants. Fellows make the Library their research home during their fellowship period and work here full time on the projects for which they have received funding.

Eurasia Dissertation Support Fellowship

The Eurasia Dissertation Support Fellowships provide financial and academic support to graduate students near completion of their doctoral programs in the social sciences and related humanities. The program provides fellowship awards of up to $25,000 for the 2010-2011 academic year. The fellowship also provides academic support and numerous networking opportunities, as all fellows will be required to attend two workshops. The Eurasia Dissertation Support Fellowships are intended for applicants who have completed their dissertation field research, who have made significant progress in outlining emergent, innovative contributions to scholarship, and who are willing to reach beyond the academic community to make their work known and accessible. One of the goals of the funding program is to support and sustain American expertise on the countries of Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
