Kluge Fellowships in Humanities and Social Sciences at Library of Congress, 2012 USA
The Kluge 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.
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. Upon selection, and in accordance with relevant visa regulations, foreign nationals will be assisted in obtaining the appropriate visa. To meet the minimum eligibility requirements, the degree must be formally awarded by the deadline date.
Tenure & Stipend
Fellowships are tenable for periods from six to eleven months at a stipend of $4,200 per month for residential research at the Library of Congress. The 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 be in residence 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. Stipends will be paid monthly by the Library of Congress, by means of electronic transfer to a U.S. bank account.
All application materials must be written in English. Please submit an original (signed) and six copies of your full application. The Fellowship application requires:
- a research proposal (no longer than three single-spaced pages);
- a bibliography of basic sources;
- a one paragraph project summary;
- a two-page curriculum vitae which should indicate major prior scholarship;
- and three letters of reference (in English) from people who have read the project proposal and know the quality of the applicant's scholarship.
Do not use any staples for the mailed application materials, use paper clips instead. In the research proposal, applicants should indicate the collections of the Library of Congress that will be used for research.
