Nominations are welcomed for the annual Kissinger Chair appointments (the Kissinger Scholar and Kissinger Lecturer). Nominations should be submitted in writing, to the attention of the Kissinger Chair Steering Committee, in care of the:
Office of Scholarly Programs
Library of Congress
101 Independence Avenue, S.E.
Washington DC 20540-4860
Nominations may also be submitted by fax (202) 707-3595 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Telephone nominations will not be accepted.
Once it is determined that a nominee for the Kissinger Scholar appointment is willing to be a candidate in the selection process, he or she will be sent an application form. The deadline for all application materials is November 1, in any given year, so nominators should allow enough time for their nominees to prepare and submit the required materials. The Selection Committee for the Kissinger Scholar considers both nominations and applications.
The Kissinger Lecturer, however, is appointed by the Librarian of Congress upon recommendation of the Steering Committee. Nominations are welcome, but there will not be direct applications. Selection will be based upon an achieved level of distinction.
