The James Madison Foundation seeks applicants with a demonstrated commitment to a career in teaching American history, American government, or social studies at the secondary level. Applicants for a fellowship must be a US citizen or US national; a teacher, or planning to be a teacher, of American history, American government, or social studies at the secondary school level, and have earned an undergraduate degree by August 31 of the competition year. Junior Fellowships are awarded to students who are about to complete or have completed an undergraduate degree and are intending to pursue full-time graduate work. Senior Fellowships are awarded to teachers who will pursue graduate work on a part-time basis through summer and evening classes. After earning a graduate degree, a Madison Fellow is required to teach American history, American government, or social studies at the 7-12 level for at least one year for each year of study under the fellowship. The maximum for each award is $24,000 total; no more than $12,000 per year.
