The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress
Kluge Fellowship Competition
Deadline for receipt of applications: August 15, 2005
The Library of Congress invites qualified scholars of the humanities and social
sciences to conduct research in the John W. Kluge Center using the Library's
collections and resources. 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
Tenure and Stipend. Fellowships may be held for periods from six to eleven
months at a stipend of $4000 per month. Constraints of space and the
desirability of acommodating the maximum number of Fellows may lead to an offer
of fewer months than originally requested. 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 three 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 referenced below.
Deadline: Applications (with nine collated copies) must be received at the
Office of Scholarly Programs, Library of Congress, by August 15, 2005. The
Library continues to experience lengthy delays in the delivery of mail by the U.
S. Postal Service. To ensure that your application arrives by the receipt
deadline, please consider using a commercial delivery service.
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 by March 15 of the year following that in
which the application is due. For further information contact The John W. Kluge
Center, Office of Scholarly Programs, Library of Congress, LJ120, 101
Independence Avenue, SE, Washington, DC 20540-4860.
