New Frederick Douglass-James Madison Fellowship is Announced.

The new Frederick Douglass-James Madison Fellowship is a privately funded, $24,000 graduate fellowship, offered to people of color who are United States citizens and who are secondary level teachers or prospective teachers of American history, American government or civics to earn a master’s degree studying the Constitution.

This fellowship aims to encourage people of color to become outstanding teachers and emulate Frederick Douglass himself as a constitutional scholar. With this new education, they will be able to take this knowledge into their classrooms. The awardee of this fellowship will be required to follow all of the rules and regulations of a traditional James Madison Fellowship.

Those who would like to compete for the Frederick Douglass-James Madison Fellowship should mark the appropriate box on the fellowship application. Candidates will only compete against others who have also marked this box. Once the Frederick Douglass-James Madison Fellowship awardee is selected by the Fellowship Selection Committee, all remaining applicants will compete in their own home state competition for standard James Madison Fellowships.
