Newberry Library–John Rylands Research Institute Exchange Fellowship
(2 December 2014)
A new fellowship has been launched providing support at the John Rylands Research Institute and the Newberry Library in Chicago.
The project should incorporate the collections of both libraries, with a month being spent at each institution. The applications for the fellowship close on January 15 2015.
Applicants should set aside two consecutive months for this fellowship, to ensure continuity of research. All application materials must be submitted to the Newberry, but applications will be reviewed by both institutions.
The stipend will be $2,500 per month at the Newberry, £1,500 at the John Rylands Research Institute, plus an additional $1,000 (or the equivalent in English pounds) for travel.
The Newberry-Rylands Fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars, PhD candidates, and those who hold other terminal degrees. This fellowship is restricted to scholars who live and work outside the Chicago Metro area and are external to The University of Manchester.
Applicants should follow the instructions listed on the Newberry’s How to apply webpage.
All applicants are strongly encouraged to consult the Newberry’s and the John Rylands’ online catalogues and collection guides before applying:
