Subject: 	Newberry Library Fellowships

*Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2007-08*

The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago, 
Illinois, invites applications for its 2007-08 Fellowships in the 
Humanities. Newberry Library fellowships support research in residence 
at the Library. All proposed research must be appropriate to the 
collections of the Newberry Library. Our fellowship program rests on the 
belief that all projects funded by the Newberry benefit from engagement 
both with the materials in the Newberry's collections and with the 
lively community of researchers that gathers around those collections. 
Long-term residential fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars 
for periods of six to eleven months. Applicants for postdoctoral awards 
must hold the Ph.D. at the time of application. The stipend for these 
fellowships is up to $40,000.  Short-term residential fellowships are 
intended for postdoctoral scholars or Ph.D. candidates from outside of 
the Chicago area who have a specific need for Newberry collections. 
Scholars whose principal residence or place of employment is within the 
Chicago area are not eligible. The tenure of short-term fellowships 
varies from one week to two months.  The amount of the award is 
generally $1200 per month. Applications for long-term fellowships are 
due January 10, 2007; applications for most short-term fellowships are 
due March 1, 2007.  For more information or to download application
