The James Madison Fellowship, a federal program, offers secondary level teachers of American history, American government, and social studies up to $24,000 to undertake graduate studies on topics related to the Constitution of the United States.
Each year the James Madison Foundation attempts to award at least one fellowship in Arkansas. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis; however, Arkansas applicants only compete with other candidates from within the state, not on a nationwide basis. The application deadline is March 1, 2010.
