James Madison Fellowship

Application Deadline:  March 1, 2017

The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation offers $24,000 James Madison Graduate Fellowships to individuals desiring to become outstanding teachers of the American Constitution at the secondary school level. The Fellowship supports graduate study leading to a master’s degree at any accredited institution in the US.

Fellowship applicants compete only against other applicants from the states of their legal residence. As funding permits, the Foundation plans to offer one fellowship per state per year. The maximum amount of each award is $24,000, prorated over the period of study, and in no case shall the award exceed $12,000 for one academic year of study. Normally, Fellows receive less than these maximum amounts. Payments are made only for the actual costs of tuition, required fees, and books (as well as room and board if required to live away from your principal residence), and are made only for the minimum number of credits required for the award of the degree for which a Fellow is registered.

Eligibility

  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Be a teacher, or plan to become a teacher, of American history, American government, or any other social studies class where you will teach topics on the Constitution at the secondary school level (grades 7–12).
  • Possess a bachelor’s degree or plan to receive a bachelor’s degree no later than August 31 of the year in which you are applying.
