The James Madison Fellowship, a federal program, offers pre-service (as well as in-service) teachers of government and history up to $24,00 to complete a Master’s degree in fields related to the U.S. Constitution. The program has awarded over 1200 fellowships since its inception in 1992.
Junior Fellows (those who have not yet taught) have two years to complete full0time graduate studies at any accredited college or university in the country. In the past two decades, fellows have matriculated at nearly 400 colleges and universities around the nation.
After receiving their degree, Junior Fellows are required to teach in a secondary school for at least two years. The majority of their Junior Fellows choose to pursue a career in teaching. To date, over 2 million secondary students in all 50 states have been taught by James Madison Fellows.
The fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis, but candidates only compete with candidates from within each state- not on a nation-wide basis. Our goal is to award at least on James Madison Fellowship per year per state. Full details of the fellowship as well as applications are available at the Madison Foundation’s website, jamesmadison.gov. Applications are due each year on March 1.
