Dear Friends,

Applications are now being accepted for the annual Midwest Modern Language Association Short-Term Fellowship at the Newberry Library. The fellowship provides support for one month in residence at the Newberry and a $2000 stipend. At the Newberry's request, applicants must live outside the Chicago area and hold a doctorate or be enrolled in a PhD program. They should also anticipate a specific need for the Newberry collections and foresee making use of them during their one month of residence.

An applicant's M/MLA membership must be current at the time of application and through the period of the fellowship, and must be completed without interruption during the following year. Applications must be received by January 15, 2014.  For application procedures, visit the Newberry’s website,

This is a wonderful opportunity for our members, and an opportunity to interest new members.  I’d urge all eligible students and post-docs to apply—please bring this to the attention of your students and colleagues.

Best wishes,

Jack Cragwall
