[Please pardon duplicate posting.]
The Asian Division of the Library of Congress is pleased to announce the Florence Tan Moeson Fellowship for 2007. 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; or, to cover expenses incurred while traveling to the Library of Congress to engage in scholastic research in the area of Asian studies. Up to 15 awards are available from $300 to $2,500. Graduate students, independent scholars, community college teachers, researchers without regular teaching appointments, and librarians with a need for fellowship support are especially encouraged to apply. Awards are announced in December.
The Asian Division's 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 our web site at http://www.loc.gov/rr/asian/ or go to "Ask A Librarian" at http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/ask-asian.html.
The Fellowship application is now available at http://lcasianfriends.org/application/index.php?sid=3. Applications must be submitted no later than September 30, 2006.
