Newberry Library (Chicago, IL 60610-3380)
Donald Bradford Hunt (Project Director: August 2019 to September 2020)
Keelin Burke (Project Director: September 2020 to present)
Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Newberry Library

48 months of stipend support (5 fellowships) per year for five years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

Grants from the NEH’s Fellowship Program at Independent Research Institutions (FPIRI) have generously allowed the Newberry Library to invite outstanding scholars to pursue ground-breaking research using our extensive collections. In this application, the Newberry requests $382,500 over three years in direct FPIRI grants to provide 24 months per year of long-term fellowship stipends for carefully-selected researchers in the humanities. Further, the Newberry requests $180,000 over three years in matching FPIRI grants to offer an additional 24 months per year of long-term fellowship stipends (12 months funded by FPIRI grants; 12 months matched by the Newberry). A FPIRI grant and additional matching funds would allow the Newberry to begin to address high demand for scholarly use of our collections, enrich humanistic inquiry, and benefit the institution long after fellowship residencies.
