Announcing 2021-2022 CRS Consortium Fellowships

Application Deadline: Feburary 1, 2021

CRS is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium Fellowships. Faculty and graduate students from consortium institutions are eligible for these short-term fellowships.

The Newberry Library’s long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library’s collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.

Short-Term Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees. Short-Term Fellowships are generally awarded for 1 to 2 months; unless otherwise noted the stipend is $3,000 per month. These fellowships support individual scholarly research for those who have a specific need for the Newberry’s collection and are mainly restricted to individuals who live and work outside of the Chicago metropolitan area. The deadline for short-term opportunities is February 1, 2021.

Many of the Newberry’s fellowship opportunities have specific eligibility requirements; in order to learn more about these requisites, as well as application guidelines, please visit our website. Questions should be addressed to
