Grant of the Week: Kislak Fellowships for the Study of the History and Cultures of the Early Americas
Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring Kislak Fellowships for the Study of the History and Cultures of the Early Americas, offered by the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress.
The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress is now accepting applications for Kislak Fellowships for the Study of the History and Cultures of the Early Americas. The application deadline is October 15, 2016.
Kislak Fellowships are short-term fellowships for independent scholars, undergraduate and graduate students, and college and university faculty to conduct research based on items from the Kislak Collection, a major collection of rare books, manuscripts, historic documents, maps and art of the Americas donated to the Library of Congress by the Jay I. Kislak Foundation of Miami Lakes, FL. The collection contains some of the earliest records of indigenous peoples in North America and superb objects from the discovery, contact, and colonial periods, especially for Florida, the Caribbean, and Mesoamerica.
Conducting full time research on-site at the Library of Congress, the fellowship provides an opportunity for a period of up to 3 months of concentrated use of the collections of the Library of Congress, through full-time residency in the Library’s John W. Kluge Center. A stipend of $4,200 per month supports the Fellow.
APPLY ONLINE: Applications should be submitted through the Kluge Center’s online application system. Save and return to your application, manage letters of reference, and receive notification of submission all through our online portal. Visit https://klugefellowships.
