The James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University is dedicated to the pursuit of scholarly excellence in the fields of constitutional law and political thought. Sponsored by Princeton's Department of Politics, the Program seeks to enrich the intellectual life of Princeton students and faculty by exploring American constitutional principles and structures through research and public discussion.
The 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 running from September 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. 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 Visiting Fellowship. The Garwood Visiting 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 the approval of the Dean of the Faculty. Depending on the needs of the University, additional teaching opportunities may be available, again subject to the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
