Prior to this period, 1998-2003,  The Kierkegaard House Foundation provided what were referred to by Howard Hong as “residencies for visiting scholars”.  This involved providing rooms at the Heath Creek apartments at the Hongs' home as needed for scholars using the Kierkegaard Library.  In 1999, Howard Hong reported on 9 “residencies” for Kierkegaard scholars.  Some were very short-term;  some were longer stays. These stays did not involve formal fellowship stipends from the Foundation.
