James Madison Fellowship

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.

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).

Institute of Current World Affairs Fellowship

Application Deadline:  March 1, 2018

The aim of the Institute of Current World Affairs (ICWA) Fellowship program is to cultivate deep expertise in foreign countries and cultures. We achieve this by supporting a Fellow over a two year period, during which she or he carries out an immersive program of self-designed, independent study abroad.

Candidates with a passion for their project country and who are sufficiently prepared to take advantage of the opportunity we offer, have the best chance of being awarded an ICWA Fellowship. Extensive professional experience in the proposed area is not always necessary; Fellowships are aimed at developing advanced knowledge and professional skills, not awarding research or reporting opportunities to those who already possess them. We are naturally drawn to areas of the world and topics that are less well understood and that are relevant to the United States. These could include thematic Fellowships, for example examining questions related to economic development or the environment that could be effectively pursued using the method of our Fellowships. Candidates are encouraged to browse ICWA’s archives to see the kind of projects that the Institute has supported.

Candidates must have the necessary language skills to allow to them to carry out their proposed project. Candidates must be under 36 years of age. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, but candidates must show strong and credible ties to U.S. society. The Fellowships do not support degree programs at universities, the writing of books, or research projects aimed at answering specific questions in a particular academic discipline.

Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowships

Application Deadline:  February 1, 2018

The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation awards ten or more dissertation fellowships each year to graduate students who would complete the writing of a dissertation within the award year. These fellowships of $20,000 each are designed to contribute to the support of the doctoral candidate to enable him or her to complete the thesis in a timely manner and are only appropriate for students approaching the final year of their Ph.D. work.

Questions that interest the foundation concern violence and aggression in relation to social change, intergroup conflict, war, terrorism, crime, and family relationships, among other subjects. Dissertations with no relevance to understanding human violence and aggression will not be supported. Priority will also be given to areas and methodologies not receiving adequate attention and support from other funding sources.

Eligibility:

Applicants may be citizens of any country and studying at colleges or universities in any country. These grants are made to Ph.D. candidates who are entering the dissertation stage of graduate school. Usually, this means that fieldwork or other research is complete and writing has begun. If analysis and writing are not far enough along for an applicant to be confident that he will complete the dissertation within the year, he should not apply, as the application will not be competitive with those that comply with this timetable. In some disciplines, particularly experimental fields, research and writing can reasonably be expected to be completed within the same year, and in those cases it is appropriate to apply.
