James Madison Memorial Fellowship Program - (James Madison Foundation) - #85.500

From 30 to 60 days. April, each year the Fellow Selection Committee meets to recommend to the Foundation the appointment of Fellows; April, each year the James Madison Fellows are named by the James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation (applicants are notified of selection results); May, each year the names of new James Madison Fellows are publicly announced.




An independent Fellow Selection Committee will evaluate all valid applications and recommend the most outstanding applicant or applicants from each State for James Madison Fellowships. Applicants compete only against other applicants from the State of their legal residence. Applicants are evaluated on their: (a) Demonstrated commitment to a career in teaching American history, American government, or social studies at the secondary level; (b) demonstrated intent to pursue a program of graduate study that emphasizes the Constitution and offers classroom instruction in that subject; (c) demonstrated devotion to civic responsibility: (d) demonstrated capacity for graduate study, as well as proven potential performance as classroom teachers (for Junior Fellowship applicants) or proven outstanding performance as classroom teachers (for Senior Fellowship applicants); and (e) proposed courses of graduate study, especially the nature and extent of their subject content components and their relationship to the enhancement of the applicants' teaching and professional activity. In this regard, a content degree such as one in history or political science may enhance an application versus a MED or a MAT. Candidates recommended for fellowships by the Fellow Selection Committee will be named James Madison Fellows. The selection procedure will ensure that at least one James Madison Fellow (junior or senior) is selected from each State in which there are at least two resident applicants who meet the minimum criteria of eligibility and are judged to merit an award.
