The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation, a federally endowed and privately funded program designed to strengthen instruction about the Constitution in the nation's schools, will award generous fellowships in 2004 for masters' degree level graduate study of the framing and history of the U.S. Constitution. College seniors and college graduates who intend to become secondary school teachers of American history, American government, or social studies are eligible for the fellowships.
Through a nationwide competition, James Madison Fellowships will be awarded to at least one legal resident of each state, the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and the other U.S. territories. After completing study under their fellowships, James Madison Fellows are required to teach American history, American government, or social studies in grades 7-12 for a minimum of one year for each academic year of graduate assistance they receive.
Fellowships carry a maximum stipend of $24,000 for up to two years of full-time study for college graduates, which is used to cover the costs of tuition, required books, and room and board.
Fellows must enroll in graduate programs leading to master's degrees in American history, political science, or education offered by any accredited U.S. university. Participation in an accredited four-week Summer Institute held at Georgetown University on the principles, framing, ratification, and implementation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights is required of all fellows, normally during the summer after the commencement of study. Fellows' attendance at the Summer Institute is paid for by the Madison Foundation.
