SCSC Newberry Fellowship
Sixteenth Century Society and Conference - Newberry Library Short Term Fellowship
This fellowship for PhD candidates or post-doctoral scholars offers up to one month’s support for work in residence at the Newberry. Preference will be given to those working in the early modern era, broadly defined (ca. 1450 – ca. 1660). Applicants must be members of the SCSC at the time of application and through the period of the fellowship.
Short-term fellowships are generally restricted to post-doctoral scholars, PhD candidates, or holders of other terminal degrees who live and work outside of the Chicago area and who have a specific need for Newberry collection. These fellowships require residency at the Newberry, unless otherwise noted. Some fellowships are open to other categories of applicants and Chicago residents. Please read the following descriptions carefully for the eligibility restrictions on particular fellowships and refer to Eligibility and Application Information. The tenure of short-term fellowships is one continuous month, unless otherwise noted. Scholars who have an extensive need for use of the collections may request two months of fellowship support. The award is $2,000 per month for most short-term fellowships.
Applications must be received electronically by January 15, 2013, 11:59 pm C.S.T. This includes the applicant’s own materials and all letters of reference.
