MMLA Short-term Fellowship


Please note that the MMLA-Newberry Fellowship has been paused due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back in Fall 2021 for information about 2022-2023 fellowship opportunities.

The Midwest Modern Language Association teams with the Newberry Library to fund an annual short-term fellowship for PhD 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 Chicago.  Applicants must be members of the MMLA.  Applications should demonstrate a specific need for the Newberry collection.

The fellowship runs from as early as July 1 of any given year, and must be used continuously (that is, without interruption). The application deadline is December 15.

For application procedures, visit the Newberry Library website or contact Keelin Burke, Research and Academics Program Manager, at burkek@newberry.org or 312-255-3666.
