[BKARTS] Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2009-2010, Chicago, IL

Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2009-2010 

The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago, Illinois,
invites applications for its 2009-2010 Fellowships in the Humanities.
Newberry Library fellowships support research in residence at the Library,
and all proposed research must be appropriate to the collections (excluding
the Terra Foundation Fellowship and certain short-term awards). 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 for
periods of six to eleven months to postdoctoral scholars who must hold the
Ph.D. at the time of application. The stipend for these fellowships ranges
from $25,500 to $70,000. In 2008-2009 the Library inaugurated a new Terra
Foundation for American Art Fellowship in Art History carrying an
academic-year stipend of $70,000 for a full professor (or its equivalent
outside the academy) and $50,400 for all other awardees. Short-term
residential fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scholars or Ph.D.
candidates from outside the Chicago area who have a specific need for
Newberry collections. The tenure of short-term fellowships varies from one
week to two months. The amount of the award is generally $1600 per month.
Applications for long-term fellowships are due January 12, 2009;
applications for most short-term fellowships are due March 2, 2009.
