Kluge Fellowships at the Library of Congress

[We have the following announcement.  Recent fellows Kluge Fellows include the legal historians Emily Kadens and Risa Goluboff.]

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress is now accepting applications for Kluge Fellowships. The application deadline is July 15, 2013.

The Kluge Fellowships are residential research fellowships at the Library of Congress open to scholars worldwide with a Ph.D. or other terminal advanced degree conferred within seven years of the deadline. The Fellowship supports research in the humanities and social sciences, especially interdisciplinary, cross-cultural or multilingual projects. The Kluge Center especially encourages humanistic and social science research that makes use of the Library’s large and varied collections.

Fellowships are tenable for periods from four to eleven months at a stipend of $4,200 per month. Up to ten Kluge Fellowships will be awarded. 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. 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.  Apply for the Kluge Fellowship here

The John W. Kluge Center was established at the Library of Congress in 2000 to foster a mutually enriching relationship between the world of ideas and the world of action, between scholars and political leaders. The Center attracts outstanding scholarly figures to Washington, D.C., facilitates their access to the Library’s remarkable collections, and helps them engage in conversation with policymakers and the public.
