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

Project Grants (fellowships)




Payments are made only for the actual costs and tuition, required fees,books,shared rooms and board for the pursuit of qualifying degrees. The maximum amount of each award is $24,000, prorated over the period of study. In no case shall the award exceed $12,000 for one academic year of study. Normally, Fellows receive less than the maximum amounts. Payments are made only for the minimum number of credits required for the award of the degree for which a Fellow is registered and for no more.

It is the intent of the Foundation to renew Junior Fellowships annually for a period not to exceed 2 calendar years and to renew Senior Fellowships annually for a period not to exceed five calendar years, or until a Fellow has completed the minimum number of credits required for the Master's degree, whichever comes first. Renewal will be in accordance with regulations established by the Foundation, subject to an annual review and certification by authorized officials of the university at which a Fellow is registered that the Fellow (if a Junior Fellow) is not engaged in gainful employment that interferes with the Fellow's studies and that the Fellow is making satisfactory progress toward the degree and is in good academic standing. In some cases, Junior Fellows may be permitted to study part-time and Senior Fellows to study full-time. The Foundation may suspend or terminate a fellowship when it obtains evidence that a Fellow is not making satisfactory progress toward the degree or is not in compliance with fellowship requirements. See the following for information on how assistance is awarded/released: Certification by authorized officials of the University at which the Fellow is registered..
