The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation is there to help teachers who have the aim of becoming outstanding individuals.
The James Madison Graduate Fellowships offers $24,000 to the teachers of the American Constitution at the secondary school level.
The great thing is that they will compete with the other applicants from the states of their legal residence and not with the others.
One fellowship is awarded per state per year.
The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, political affiliations, or age in its program and activities.
In order to be accepted as a possible candidate for this scholarship, you have to fulfill the eligibility requirements.

There are two fellowships – the Junior Fellowship awarded to outstanding college seniors and college graduates without teaching experience who intend to become secondary school teachers of American history and the Senior Fellowships awarded to outstanding current teachers who are required to complete graduate study within 5 calendar years of part-time study.
