The Newberry Library Fellowships are available to graduate, doctoral, and postdoctoral students in the humanities whose research would benefit from time spent in the library's collections. Newberry's collections concern the civilizations of Western Europe and the Americas from the late middle ages to the early twentieth century. A number of long- and short-term fellowships are available at stipends of $1,800 to $35,000. Application deadlines vary; detailed program and application information is available on the library's website.
The Women's Research & Education Institution offers the Congressional Fellowship on Women and Public Policy, which is designed to give students experience in public policymaking in Congress. Applicants must be women enrolled in a master's or doctoral program (or completed within the past 18 months), with preference given to applicants who have completed at least nine hours of graduate coursework and have a demonstrated interest in research or political activity related to women's social and political status.
