The Newberry Library is now accepting applications for two short-term fellowship opportunities in the fields of Early American History and Early American Political Thought.

The Newberry Library-Jack Miller Center Fellowship is available to PhD candidates or postdoctoral scholars and supports one or two months’ research at the Newberry. This fellowship is intended to advance scholarship in those fields of study that will contribute to a deeper understanding of America’s founding principles and history and wider traditions that influenced its development.

The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Illinois Fellowship is intended for PhD candidates or postdoctoral scholars and supports one month’s work in residence at the Newberry. Preference will be given to those working in early American History.

Newberry Library Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees. Most fellowships are restricted to scholars who live and work outside the Chicago Metro area. Short-Term Fellowships are generally awarded for one continuous month in residence at the Newberry, with stipends of $2,500 per month. Applicants must demonstrate a specific need for the Newberry’s collection. For additional information about eligibility requirements and application guidelines, please visit our website.

The short-term fellowship deadline for the 2016-17 application cycle is December 15, 2015.
*Please note our new deadlines for the 2016-2017 academic year.
