The James Madison Program invites college and university professors and other professionals with established records of scholarship to apply for appointments as Visiting Fellows for the academic year.  One-semester appointments are possible but not preferred.  Among the research fellowships offered are the Ann and Herbert W. Vaughan Visiting Fellowship and the William E. Simon Visiting Fellowship in Religion and Public Life. 

The Program also invites applications for the Garwood Teaching Fellowship.  The Garwood Teaching Fellowship can be for one semester or the academic year.  Garwood Teaching Fellows teach at least one undergraduate course in the Department of Politics on statesmanship and presidential leadership, subject to sufficient enrollment and  approval of the Dean of the Faculty.  Depending on the needs of the University, additional teaching opportunities may be available, again subject to enrollment and approval of the Dean of the Faculty.

For priority consideration application materials must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on December 1, 2023 for appointments beginning in September 2024. Awards will be announced in March 2024 or before.
