M/MLA Short-term Fellowship

Fellowship Overview

Along with the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois, the Midwest Modern Language Association offers a short-term fellowship for Ph.D. candidates or post-doctoral scholars. The fellowship provides support for one month in residence at the Newberry and a $2500 stipend. At the Newberry's request, applicants must live outside the Chicago area and hold a doctorate or be enrolled in a PhD program. They should also anticipate a specific need for the Newberry collections and foresee making use of them during their one month of residence.

An applicant's MMLA membership must be current at the time of application and through the period of the fellowship, which may begin as early as July 1, 2014, and must be completed without interruption during the following year. The application deadline is January 15, 2014.

For application procedures, visit the Newberry Library website or contact Kristen Emery at emeryk@newberry.org or 312-255-3533.
