James Madison Memorial Fellowship Program

The James Madison Memorial Fellowship is a federal program that offers secondary level teachers (both pre-service and in-service) of history and government up to $24,000 to complete a master’s degree in history, political science, or related fields.

To be eligible, you must be, or plan to become, a teacher of American history, American government, or any other social studies class, teaching topics on the Constitution at the secondary school level (grades 7–12). In addition, you must be a U.S. citizen and either possess a bachelor’s degree, or plan to receive a bachelor’s degree no later than August 31 of the year in which you are applying.

In addition to receiving financial assistance for a master’s degree program, Fellows will have the unique opportunity to attend an intensive summer institute to strengthen their knowledge of the origins and development of American constitutional government.
