The John W. Kluge Center and the Philip Lee Phillips Society at the Library of Congress invite qualified scholars to conduct research at the Kluge Center using the Geography and Map Divisions collections and resources for a period of two months.

The Philip Lee Phillips Map Society Fellowship in the History of Cartography has been established to promote the scholarly study of the collections of the Geography and Map Division of the Library of the Congress. The fellowship is funded by the Society’s generous donors, who have a strong interest in the history of cartography, geography, and maps generally. The fellowship grants a qualified scholar a residency of eight weeks for the purpose of research in the history of cartography or a related field.  The fellowship requires the investigation and utilization of materials from the collections of the Geography and Map Division. The amount of the fellowship is $11,500 with the possibility of an additional $2,000 as an honorarium for a lecture and publication. The Geography and Map Division has custody of the largest and most comprehensive cartographic collection in the world with collections numbering over 5 million maps, 100,000 atlases, 8,000 reference works, over 5000 globes and globe gores, 3,000 raised relief models, and several terabytes of born-digital geospatial data.
