Grant of the Week: Kluge Fellowships

Sadie Bergen | Apr 22, 2016

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 Kluge Fellowships from the Library of Congress.

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress is now accepting applications for Kluge Fellowships. The application deadline is July 15, 2016.

Kluge Fellowships are residential research fellowships at the Library of Congress open to scholars worldwide with a PhD 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.

Full eligibility and stipend information is available on our website: http://www.loc.gov/kluge/fellowships/kluge.html

Kluge Fellowships are tenable for periods from 4 to 11 months at a stipend of $4,200 per month. Up to 12 Kluge Fellowships will be awarded. Fellows may be in residence at any time during the 14-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.

HOW TO APPLY: Applications can now be submitted online through the Kluge Center’s new online application system. Save and return to your application, manage reference requests, and receive notification that your application has been submitted and received all through our new online portal.

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, DC, facilitates their access to the Library’s remarkable collections, and helps them engage in conversation with policymakers and the public.
