Newberry Library Long Term Fellowships

The Newberry Library begins to accept applications for long-term fellowships on September 1, 2013. Applications must be received electronically by December 1, 2013, 11:59 pm C.S.T. (unless otherwise noted). This includes the applicant’s own materials and all letters of reference.

Long-term fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars who want to be in residence at the Newberry for periods of four to twelve months. Applicants for postdoctoral awards must hold a PhD at the time of application (unless otherwise noted). These grants support individual research and promote serious intellectual exchange through active participation in the Newberry’s scholarly activities, including a biweekly fellows’ seminar. The stipends for these fellowships are $4,200 per month; awardees must indicate in their applications how many months they intend to be in residence at the Newberry. Applicants may combine these fellowship awards with sabbatical or other stipendiary support. Scholars may apply for any of the long-term fellowships using the same application. Each fellowship has specific eligibility requirements. Preference is given to applicants who have not held major fellowships for three years preceding the proposed period of residency. Please read the individual descriptions carefully to determine eligibility.

There is a specific NCAIS fellowship, but UNM members would be eligible for several of the other fellowships as well. See

Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies Faculty Fellowship

This fellowship is designed for faculty members at institutions participating in the consortium. Preference is given to scholars at an early career stage. Applicants must request at least four and no more than six months of support.
