This fellowship is for women of American Indian heritage. While candidates for this award may be working in any graduate or pre-professional field, the particular goal of the Allen Fellowship is to encourage American Indian women in their studies of any field related to the Newberry’s collections. Allen fellows are expected to spend a significant part of their tenure in residence at the Newberry’s D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History. The tenure of the fellowship is from one month to one year; the standard award is $2,000 per month; supplemental funding may also be available on a case by case basis.

Deadline: December 1 for long-term fellowships; January 15 for short-term fellowships
