The Harry Middleton Fellowship in Presidential Studies

The Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation, the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library, and the Institute for the 21st Century are pleased to announce the creation of the Harry Middleton Fellowship in Presidential Studies. The Middleton fellowship carries a stipend of up to $5,000, and as many as two will be awarded annually. These fellowships support scholars interested in presidential policy during the postwar period. While the funds can be used at any Presidential library in the National Archives system, the successful candidate will develop at least a portion of her or his work from original research in the collections of the Lyndon B. Johnson Library. Middleton fellows will be offered a chance to present their research to the staff of LBJ Library and the faculty of the LBJ School of Public Affairs. While post-doctoral candidates may apply, preference will be given to pre-doctoral candidates whose dissertation research highlights how historical work can illuminate current and future policy issues. Scholars from abroad are also strongly urged to apply.

Candidates should send a research proposal, curriculum vitae, and two letters of recommendation to Francis J. Gavin, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin, P.O. Box Y, Austin, TX, 78713-8925, or via e-mail at fgavin@mail.utexas.edu, by December 15, 2003. Your proposal should detail the collections in the Johnson Library and other institutions that you plan to use. Please describe how the funds will be applied, other fellowships or grants that will support the project and whether matching funds are available to you from your institution or elsewhere.
