All selected applicants will receive a stipend to help defray expenses while attending the seminar, and reimbursements will be available for those students who incur travel costs to attend the seminar.

Lunch will be provided at each seminar meeting.

The Newberry Library has negotiated discounted room rates with a number of area hotels. Please see our accommodations page for more information on hotels, hostels, and other short term housing options.

If students seek course credit toward their doctoral degree, they should enroll in the course as an independent study, under the direction of an advisor who understands that the course would be beneficial to his or her advisee’s graduate study. If needed, Newberry faculty is happy to write on the students’ behalf explaining the content and benefits of the course.
