The Newberry Library is once again seeking ABD doctoral candidates in the humanities for its Graduate Scholar-in-Residence program.
Greg Bereiter and Bob Fulton, doctoral candidates from Northern Illinois University, have recently served as graduate scholars-in-residence at the Newberry and had very rewarding experiences. This is a great opportunity for advanced graduate students in the humanities at NIU and other Chicago-area universities.
The Newberry Library announcement reads:
“We invite graduate students who have advanced to PhD candidacy to apply for this status for the 2015-16 academic year. Preference will be given to candidates whose dissertation projects are well advanced (within a year of completion) and who demonstrate a need for the Newberry collection. The students who are selected will be provided with research carrels, access to the Newberry during extended hours, and opportunities to present their work-in-progress to the Newberry’s community.”
The deadline for applications is May 1, 2015.
