The Newberry’s residential fellowship program dates to 1944, when the institution received a $100,000 grant from the Rockefeller Foundation to encourage scholarship in Midwestern studies. Since then, the program has grown in size and scope. The Newberry currently welcomes around 10 long-term and around 40 short-term fellows from around the globe each year. These fellows pursue research in the Newberry’s collections on topics that range widely across the humanities.
We would like to thank the organizations and donors who have made these research fellowships possible.
