Guggenheim Dissertation Fellowships – Final Year of Dissertation

December 19, 2013 – 4:33 pm

These fellowships are made to Ph.D. candidates who are entering the dissertation stage of graduate school. Usually, this means that fieldwork or other research is complete and writing has begun. If analysis and writing are not far enough along for an applicant to be confident that he will complete the dissertation within the year, he should not apply, as the application will not be competitive with those that comply with this timetable. Questions that interest the foundation concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, among other subjects. Dissertations with no relevance to understanding human violence and aggression will not be supported. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

Career Development Grants for Graduate Students – $750 Hayek Award

December 19, 2013 – 4:23 pm

The Hayek fund awards grants to aspiring and established academics pursuing liberty-advancing careers and educational initiatives that go beyond standard curricula. The two-fold aim is to help scholars advance their careers, and to innovatively connect students with the ideas of liberty. Career development grants are for students and untenured scholars. These grants can cover travel, application fees, conference fees, and other career-related expenses. Eligible career-advancing activities include, but are not limited to: 1) presentations at academic or professional conferences; 2) travel to academic job interviews on a campus or at professional/academic conferences; 3) travel to archives or libraries for research; participation in career-development or enhancing seminars; 4) distribution of a published article to colleagues in your field; and/or 5) submission of unpublished manuscripts to journals or book publishers. Hayek Fund awards are not given for conference attendance alone. Funding will only be considered for individuals presenting a paper or interviewing for a job at a conference.

Newberry Library Fellowships in the Humanities, 2014-15

November 6, 2013 – 9:39 am

The application deadline for Newberry Library Long-Term Fellowships is quickly approaching! Additionally, we offer Short-Term Fellowship opportunities for smaller-scale research projects. Please read on for more information.

The Newberry’s fellowships support humanities research in residence at the Newberry. If you study the humanities, we have something for you. Our collection is wide-ranging, rich, and sometimes eccentric. We offer a lively interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators, librarians, and scholars; and an array of scholarly and public programs. All applicants are strongly encouraged to examine the Newberry’s online catalog before applying.



These fellowships support research and writing by post-doctoral scholars. The purpose is to support fellows as they develop or complete larger-scale studies which draw on our collections, and also to nourish intellectual exchange among fellows and the Library community. Fellowship terms range from four to twelve months with stipends of up to $50,400.

Deadline: December 1, 2013



PhD candidates and post-doctoral scholars are eligible for short-term fellowships. The purpose is to help researchers gain access to specific materials at the Newberry that are not readily available to them elsewhere. Short-term fellowships are usually awarded for a period of one month. Most are restricted to scholars who live and work outside the Chicago area. Most stipends are $2,500 per month.

We also invite short-term fellowship applications from teams of two or three scholars to collaborate intensively on a single, substantive project. Each scholar on a team-fellowship is awarded a full stipend.

Deadline: January 15, 2014
