Harry Middleton Fellowship in Presidential Studies
The Harry Middleton Fellowship was created to support scholarly work in Presidential studies and to recognize Harry Middleton's contributions to the Presidential library system. Harry Middleton was a speechwriter for President Johnson and later served as director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library & Museum from 1972 to 2002. While Middleton Fellows will be able to conduct research at any Presidential library or other facility in the National Archives and Records Administration system, they must conduct a portion of their research using the collections of the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. Post-doctoral fellows may apply, but preference will be given to doctoral candidates whose dissertation research highlights how history can illuminate current and future policy issues.
The Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation will award one $5,000 Middleton Fellowship for the fall term and one for the spring term each year. A larger amount may be awarded when special circumstances, such as international travel, warrant it. Grant periods are June 1 through December 31 for the fall term and January 1 through August 31 for the spring term. Grant applications for the fall term must be received by March 15; recipients will be notified by early May. Grant applications for the spring term must be received by September 15; recipients will be notified by the end of November.
