Kluge Center fellowships

(6 September 2005)

The Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to conduct research in the John W Kluge Center using the Library of Congress collections and resources for a period of up to 11 months.

The center especially encourages humanistic and social science research that makes use of the library's large and varied collections. Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, or multi-lingual research is particularly welcome. Among the collections available to researchers are the world's largest law library and outstanding multi-lingual collections of books and periodicals. Deep special collections of manuscripts, maps, music, films, recorded sound, prints and photographs are also available.

Fellowships are tenable for periods from six to 11 months at a stipend of $4,000 per month for residential research at the Library of Congress.

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. Applicants may be US citizens or foreign nationals.
