Arthur and Lila Weinberg Fellowship for Independent Researchers

The Newberry Library is now accepting fellowship applications for the 2018-19 academic year!

The Arthur and Lila Weinberg Fellowship is designated for writers, journalists, filmmakers, visual and performing artists, and other humanists who wish to use the Newberry’s collection to further their creative work. Preference is given to individuals working on projects that focus on social justice or reform. Applicants must be individuals working outside of traditional academic settings, who are not employed as, or seeking employment as, full-time academic faculty. Applicants within the Chicago metropolitan area are eligible. One month of funding of $2,500 is available; however, local recipients may choose to distribute their time over several months.
