Florence Tan Moeson Fellowship Program 2006
Asian Division Friends Society
Asian Division
Library of Congress 

The Asian Division Friends Society is pleased to announce the Florence Tan Moeson Fellowship for 2006. This fellowship is made possible by the generous donation by Mrs. Florence Tan Moeson, a former cataloger in the Chinese Team of the Regional and Cooperative Cataloging Division for 45 years. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide individuals with the opportunity to pursue research on East, Southeast, and/or South Asia (including the overseas Asian communities), using the unparalleled collections of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The grants are for a minimum of five business days of research and are to be used to cover travel to and from Washington, overnight accommodations, and photocopying. Up to 15 awards are available from $300 to $2,500, based on demonstrated need. Graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, independent scholars, community college teachers, researchers without regular teaching appointments, and librarians with a demonstrated need for fellowship support are especially encouraged to apply.

The Asian Divisions collections are among the most significant outside of Asia and comprise over 3 million books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts and microforms in the languages of East, South and Southeast Asia. Initiated in 1869 with a gift of ten works in 933 volumes that was offered to the United States by the Emperor of China, the Asian collections have become one of the most accessible and comprehensive sources of Asian language materials in the world. The collections span a diversity of subjects from China, Japan, Korea, the South Asian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. For further information about the collection, please visit the Asian Reading Room web site at http://www.loc.gov/rr/asian/ or "Ask a Librarian" web site at http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/ask-asian.html.
