Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2009-2010

The Terra Foundation for American Art Fellowship at the Newberry
Library will enable a scholar to advance a project of significance
about historical American art using resources in any collections in
Chicago. Studies may focus on painting, sculpture, prints, drawings,
decorative arts, or photography. Applicants must have held the Ph.D.
for at least three years prior to September 1, 2009. The fellowship
carries an academic-year stipend of $70,000 for a full professor (or
its equivalent outside the academy) and $50,400 for an Associate or
Assistant Professor or independent scholar. The award includes a
stipend for a graduate student research assistant and a modest
budget for local travel. The Terra Foundation Fellow will
participate in the Newberry's community of scholars, offer two
public lectures, and be available to visit at least one graduate
seminar in the Chicago area. For more information about this
fellowship, go to

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 form 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. For more information or to
