Newton Fellowship

Funded by the Anne & Bill Newton Endowment Fund, the Robert W. Woodruff Library will award one fellowship to an advanced graduate student. The Anne and Bill Newton Fellow will assist the staff of the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library with projects related to its instruction and outreach program and will conduct 2-4 short term projects in these areas. The Newton Fellow will be expected to research, design, and assess instructional curriculum appropriate for the use of Rose Library exhibitions in undergraduate courses. In addition, the fellow will utilize his/her teaching, writing, and research skills to curate an exhibition that connects the Rose Library’s collections to a campus wide discussion. The fellow will be assigned to the Research Services Unit of Rose Library and an interest in the public functions of libraries and archives is not required, but preferred. 

Fellowships are generally 9-month placements (September – May) with a stipend of $18,000 (subject to adjustment by LGS).

Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements below. The goal of the fellowship is to enhance the applicant’s skills in using specialized resources in research and teaching and understanding of emerging issues such as digital scholarship and scholarly communication.


To be considered for the fellowship, applicants must:

  • not hold the fellowship and their stipend at the same time, if still receiving a stipend;
  • be in 3rd year or above at the time of application, candidacy is preferred; and
  • have the approval of their DGS and advisor
