The Newberry Library-John Rylands Research Institute Joint Fellowship provides two months of support for a scholar to be in residence for one month at the Newberry Library in Chicago and an additional month in residence at the John Rylands Library. The proposed project must link the collections of both libraries; applicants should plan to hold the two fellowships sequentially to ensure continuity of research.
All application materials should be submitted to the Newberry, but applications will be reviewed by both institutions. The stipend will be $2,500 per month at the Newberry, £1,500 at the John Rylands Library, plus an additional $1,000 (or the equivalent in English pounds) for travel.
Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees.
For more information, including application guidelines and additional fellowship opportunities, please visit the Newberry’s fellowship page. Questions about the application process should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date for applications is 15 December 2016.
