Press Release:

The Newberry is pleased to announce its Long-Term and Short-Term Fellowship awards for 2018-19. We will support 12 long-term and 46 short-term fellows, with funds coming from Newberry endowments, grants, gifts, and consortia, as well as partnerships with other institutions and scholarly organizations.

complete list of fellows is available on our website as well as a profile of each Long-Term Fellow.

The Newberry Fellowship program provides scholars the opportunity to extensively use our collections in a supportive environment. Often, fellows make exciting finds, develop new interpretations, and deepen their contextual understandings.

Fellows also participate in a lively community of scholars, including other fellows, curators, librarians, Scholars-in-Residence, and our research centers, focused on advancing our understanding of the humanities.
