be made for individuals without continuous academic careers. Applicants may
be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals.
Tenure and Stipend. Fellowships may be held for periods from six to eleven
months at a stipend of $3500 per month. Constraints of space and the
desirability of accommodating the maximum number of Fellows may lead to an
offer of fewer months than originally requested. Fellows may begin tenure
at any time between June 1 of the year in which the Fellowship is awarded
and August 1 of the year following, providing space is available. Stipends
will be paid monthly, usually by electronic transfer to a bank account.
Applications: All applications must be written in English. The application
must include a research proposal (no longer than three single-spaced pages)
and a single paragraph summary, a two-page curriculum vita which should
indicate major prior scholarship, an indication of the collections at the
Library of Congress that will be used for research and two letters of
reference (in English) from individuals who know the quality of the
applicant's scholarship. The application form and reference form may be
printed from the website: <http://www.loc.gov/kluge>http://www.loc.gov/kluge
Deadline: Applications (including nine collated copies) must be received at
the Office of Scholarly Programs, Library of Congress, by August 15, 2004.
Language Certification: For applicants whose native language is not
English, there must be evidence that the applicant is fluent in English so
as easily to conduct research, discuss work with colleagues, and make a
public presentation, although the ultimate product of the research may be
written in the applicant's native language. For English speakers who seek
to do research in the Library's foreign language collections, there must be
evidence that they have a command of the relevant language or languages at
the level requisite for serious research.

Library of Congress. Awards will be announced by March 15 of the year
following that in which the application is due.
