The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress
Kluge Fellowship Competition
Deadline for receipt of applications: August 15, 2003

The Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to conduct research
in the John W. Kluge Center using the Library's collections and
resources for tenure periods of six months to one year. The Center
especially encourages humanistic and social science
research. Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, or multilingual research
is particularly welcome.
 
Eligibility: Scholars who have received a terminal advanced degree
within the past seven years in the humanities, social sciences or in a
professional field such as architecture or law are
eligible. Exceptions may be made for individuals without continuous
academic careers. Applicants may be U.S. citizens or foreign
nationals.
 
Tenure and Stipend. Fellowships may be held for periods from six to
twelve months at a stipend of $3500 per month. Constraints of space
and the desirability of accommodating the maximum number of Fellows
may lead to an offer of fewer months than originally requested.
Fellows may begin tenure at any time during the fourteen-month window
between June 1 of the year in which the Fellowship is awarded and
August 1 of the year following, providing space is available.
Stipends will be paid monthly, usually by electronic transfer to a
bank account.
 
Applications: All applications must be written in English. The
application must include a research proposal (no longer than three
single-spaced pages) and a single paragraph summary, a two-page
curriculum vita which should indicate major prior scholarship, an
indication of the collections at the Library of Congress that will be
used for research and two letters of reference (in English) from
individuals who know the quality of the applicant's scholarship. The
application form and reference form may be printed from the website:
http://www.loc.gov/kluge <http://www.loc.gov/kluge>;
 
Deadline: Applications (including nine collated copies) must be
received at the Office of Scholarly Programs, Library of Congress, by
August 15, 2003.
 
Language Certification: For applicants whose native language is not
English, there must be evidence that the applicant is fluent in
English so as easily to conduct research, discuss work with
colleagues, and make a public presentation, although the ultimate
product of the research may be written in the applicant's native
language. For English speakers who seek to do research in the
Library's foreign language collections, there must be evidence that
they have a command of the relevant language or languages at the level
requisite for serious research.
 
Awards: Up to twelve Kluge Fellowships will be awarded annually by the
Library of congress. Awards will be announced no later than March 15
of the year following that in which the application is due.
