The Kluge Fellowship: Applications are Open and the Criteria Have Changed

Share this post:

Applications are now open for Kluge Fellowships at the John W. Kluge Center. Fellowships are open to scholars in the humanities and social sciences, with special consideration given to those whose projects demonstrate relevance to the challenges facing democracies in the 21st century.

The application deadline is July 15, 2019, and you can apply online here.

Please read through the eligibility information and application requirements, as they have changed since last year. In addition to being open to scholars who have received a terminal advanced degree within the seven years in the humanities, social sciences, or in a professional field such as architecture or law, the fellowship is now open to researchers without the terminal degree in their field whose proposal meets the criteria for scholarly merit and demonstrates relevance to contemporary challenges.

Twelve Kluge Fellowships are awarded each year through a competitive selection process, for a period of four to eleven months.

Since the inception of the Kluge Center, dozens of Kluge Fellows have gone on to distinguished academic careers; many have made lasting contributions as public intellectuals.
