    Deadline for receipt of applications: August 15, 2004

    The Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to conduct research in
    the John W. Kluge Center using the Library's collections and resources. The
    Center especially encourages humanistic and social science research.
    Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, or multilingual research is particularly

    Eligibility: Scholars who have received a terminal advanced degree within
    the past seven years in the humanities, social sciences or in a
    professional field such as architecture or law are eligible. Exceptions may
    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.

    Awards: Up to twelve Kluge Fellowships will be awarded annually by the
    Library of Congress. Awards will be announced by March 15 of the year
    following that in which the application is due.
