James Madison Graduate Fellowships
Candidates must be pursuing a Master of Arts or Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in American history, political science, or government. The purpose of the fellowship is to help students who want to become outstanding teachers of the American Constitution at the secondary school level.
Each year, The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation offers fellowships to one student in each state. The Foundation, established in 1986 by Congress, was created to foster greater teaching in secondary schools about the United States Constitution.
Located in Alexandria, Virginia, the Foundation is an independent agency of the Executive Branch of the federal government. Funding comes from Congress and contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Fellowship funds may be used to cover the actual costs of tuition, required fees, books, and room and board.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $24,000.
