    The Newberry Library invites applications for its Fellowships in the
    Humanities, 2001-02.
    Long-term fellowships are available to postdoctoral scholars (and Ph.D.
    candidates in the case of the Spencer Fellowship) for periods of six to
    eleven months, unless otherwise noted under the fellowship description.
    Applicants for post-doctoral awards must hold the Ph.D. at the time of
    application. The stipend for these fellowships is up to $30,000 unless

    candidates (or equivalent for the field) from outside of the Chicago area
    who have a specific need for Newberry collections. Scholars whose principal
    residence or place of employment is within the Chicago area are not
    eligible. The tenure of short-term fellowships varies from one week to two
    months unless otherwise noted under the award description (a majority of

    $1200 per month.  Short-term fellowships include:
