2007 White House Historical Association...
The White House Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians seek proposals for research projects focusing on the roles of the White House as home, workplace, museum, structure, and symbol. Teachers and scholars whose work enhances understanding of how the White House functions in its several capacities and of life and work at all levels within the walls of the President's House are encouraged to apply. (Studies that deal primarily with political or governmental policy issues would not be appropriate for this program, but ones concerning the operation of the White House as a political institution would be considered.)
In an effort to reach a number of learning communities, the cosponsors offer three fellowships:
* The White House History Fellowship in Precollegiate Education for initiatives that reach the K-12 classroom.
* The White House History Research Fellowship for forwarding or completing dissertation, postdoctoral, or advanced academic work.
* The White House History Fellowship in Public History for public presentation in the form of exhibits, multimedia projects, films, etc., or for other projects that make historical collections available to broad audiences.
Awards are $2000/month. We will consider proposals for fellowships lasting one to six months. To apply, please send the following items as an MS-Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) file to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2006:
1. C.V. or resume;
2. A two-page summary of your project including the proposed final product of the research and timetable;
3. Three professional references;
4. A modest travel stipend is also available. If interested, submit a travel budget as well.
