Gerald R. Ford Scholar Award (Dissertation Award) in Honor of Robert M. Teeter
This annual award of $5,000 is given to a doctoral student conducting dissertation research and writing on an aspect of the United States political process during the latter part of the 20th century. Of special interest is the role and analysis of public opinion in that process. The Selection Committee encourages applications from doctoral students in a wide range of fields, including Political Science, History, Journalism, Communications, Public Policy, Foreign Relations, and American Studies.
Applicants must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. program (coursework and examinations) except for the dissertation by the application deadline. The award must support research to be conducted after the award is announced, part of which must be done at the Ford Library, and will not be granted retroactively for research already completed.
The Ford Scholar Award was established in 2005 to honor the life and work of Robert Teeter, who spent over thirty years as a leader in public opinion analysis and campaign strategy, including the 1976 campaign of President Gerald R. Ford. The majority of written materials from Mr. Teeter’s career are part of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library collection. This award has been made possible by the generous support of the Teeter family and friends, and his colleagues on the United Parcel Service Board of Directors.
