Fellows work closely with the Library's special collections.

The New York Public Library is pleased to offer Short-Term Research Fellowships to support scholars from outside the New York metropolitan area engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research.   Individuals needing to conduct on-site research in the Library’s special collections are welcome to apply.  Preference is given to applications making a strong case for accessing special collections materials.  

Each fellow is expected to be in residence at the Library for the duration of their fellowship and each fellow will be expected to produce a written summary of his/her experience working with the collections.  Fellowship stipends are $1,000 per week for a minimum of two and maximum of four weeks.  

Detailed information about the research resources of the New York Public Library can be found here.

Eligibility:  Only U.S. citizens, permanent residents and foreign nationals who have been resident in the United States for the three years as of January 31, 2017 may apply.

Details regarding the  2017-2018 application cyle will be posted in October 2016.
