Florence Tan Moeson Fellowship

The Asian Division Florence Tan Moeson Research Fellowship Program is made possible by the generous donation of Florence Tan Moeson, who served as a cataloger at the Library of Congress for 43 years until she retired in 2001. Mrs. Moeson passed away on November 15, 2008.

The purpose of the fellowship is to provide individuals with the opportunity to pursue research in the area of Asian studies, using the unparalleled collections of the Asian Division and the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The fellowships are for a minimum of five business days of research at the Library of Congress. The grants may vary from $300 to $3,000 and are to be used to cover travel to and from Washington, overnight accommodations, as well as other research expenses. Graduate students, independent scholars, researchers, and librarians with a need for fellowship support are especially encouraged to apply.

The Fellowship opportunity is usually announced on the Asian Division website, http://www.loc.gov/rr/asian/, in October and grants are typically awarded in early spring.
