               Kluge Fellowships are for residential research in the collections of
       the Library of Congress. Fellowships are for period of from six to twelve
       months with a stipend of $3,500 per month.

               Eligibility: Scholars who have received a terminal advanced degree
       within the past seven years in the humanities, the 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.

               Applications: the application form and reference form may be printed
       from the website www.loc.gov/kluge. Applications must include a
       three-page single-spaced research proposal, a two-page curriculum vitae
       indicating major prior scholarship, an indication of the collections at
       the Library of Congress that will be used for research, and two letters of
       reference from individuals who know the quality of the applicant's
       scholarship. All application materials must be written in English.

               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.
