1736Newberry Fellowship Opportunity for Independent Scholars
- Nov 5, 2013Arthur and Lila Weinberg Fellowship for Independent Scholars and Researchers
This fellowship is for an independent scholar or researcher who wishes to participate in the rich and varied scholarly and public programming of the Newberry. The Newberry considers "independent scholars" to be individuals working outside of traditional academic settings, who are not employed as, or seeking to be employed as, full-time academic faculty. We seek scholars, journalists, writers, filmmakers, visual and performing artists, and other humanists, who wish to use the Newberry's collection in the creation of a publication or comparable product. Preference is given to scholars working on historical issues related to social justice or reform. This fellowship is intended to support one month in residence at the Newberry; Chicago-area residents who are awarded a Weinberg Fellowship may choose to distribute their time over 9-12 months on a flexible basis to be determined in
conversation with Newberry staff. The fellow will receive a total stipend of $2,000. Deadline is January 15, 2014. For more information, please visit http://newberry.org/short-term-fellowships.
