Today we announced the call for Kluge Fellowship applications. The deadline is July 15.
The Kluge Fellowship is the Kluge Center’s flagship fellowship program. Inaugurated with the inception of the Center in 2000, the Kluge Center charter stipulates that:
“The Kluge Center will also accommodate at any given time up to a dozen Fellows, pursuing particularly at the post-doctoral level resident research usually for periods from five to ten months. Interdisciplinary and cross-cultural topics of a kind normally not encouraged in specialized departmental settings will be welcome.”
Since 2000 the Kluge Center has welcomed more than 150 Kluge Fellows to conduct research in the Library of Congress collections. Their projects have used the Library’s collections in innovative ways, researched an array of topics that span disciplines, and have enlivened the Center with their energy, intellect and collegiality. You can see the list of last year’s fellows on our blog. The list of all past Kluge Fellows is on our website.
About the Fellowships
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.
Kluge Fellowships are tenable for periods from four to eleven months at a stipend of $4,200 per month. Up to twelve 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.
