The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress

Kluge Fellowship Competition

Deadline for receipt of applications: August 15, 2006

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 nationals.

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 accommodating 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 must be received at the Office of Scholarly
Programs, Library of Congress, by August 15, 2006. 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.
