Program The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress

Georgian Papers Programme Fellowship

About the Program

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress and the Royal Archives at Windsor invite scholars to conduct research as part of the Georgian Papers Programme External (GPP) of the Royal Archives at Windsor and in the George Washington Papers of the Library of Congress. On October 24, 2016, the Library of Congress, the Royal Collection Trust, and King's College London signed a memorandum of understanding, agreeing to share resources concerning the digitization of the papers of King George III (1738-1820), the English monarch in power when the American colonies declared independence. The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture External and William & Mary External are the primary U.S. partners for the GPP. The Library of Congress joins the Sons of the American Revolution and the Mount Vernon Ladies Association as a critical part of the American collaboration. The objective of the Georgian Papers Fellowship award is to allow fellows the opportunity to pursue independent research in the Royal Archives and the Library of Congress, as well as to support the related work of the Georgian Papers Programme.
