The Newberry Library invites applications for its Fellowships in the
Humanities, 2001-02.

Long-term fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars (and Ph.D.
candidates in the case of the Spencer Fellowship) for periods of six to
eleven months, unless otherwise noted under the fellowship description.
Applicants for post-doctoral awards must hold the Ph.D. at the time of
application. The stipend for these fellowships is up to $30,000 unless

Short-term fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scholars or Ph.D.
candidates (or equivalent for the field) 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 unless otherwise noted under the award description (a
majority of fellowships are one month or less). The amount of the award
is generally $1200 per month.  Short-term fellowships include:
