Dear Colleagues,

The Newberry is pleased to announce its Long-Term and Short-Term Fellowship awards for 2018-19. We will support 12 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.

A complete list of fellows is available on our website as well as a profile of each Long-Term Fellow.

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, Scholars-in-Residence, 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.
