The Kenny Howard Fellowship Program is a non-profit 501(c)(3) which represents a joint venture of Auburn University, (the Departments of Kinesiology and Curriculum and Teaching), East Alabama Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, East Alabama Medical Center, and RehabWorks Physical Rehabilitation. The purpose of the program is to educate certified athletic trainers (ATCs) and to provide health care to adolescent and pediatric athletes.

The largest need for certified athletic trainers is in the high schools where more than 6 million student-athletes participate in sporting activities. This program offers ATCs the opportunity to further their education and to help meet the specific needs of this population. The ATCs are provided a unique opportunity to set up and develop their own program at the school, while working with student-athletes, coaches, administrators, and parents, to meet the needs of the high school setting.

Another benefit to having certified athletic trainers present in the high schools is the availability of assistance in creating athletic training school modules. Many high school students are interested in a sports medicine career (i.e., athletic training, physical therapy, sports medicine). We are able to develop programs within the school, where high school students can act as assistants to the ATCs. This further augments the athletic trainers’ educational experiences and benefits those students interested in the health care profession.

The James Madison Fellowships

Description of award: The James Madison Fellowships were created to honor Madison's legacy and Madisonian principles by providing support for graduate study that focuses on the Constitution—its history and contemporary relevance to the practices and policies of democratic government.

The Foundation offers two types of fellowships:

The first is the Junior Fellowship, which is awarded to students who are about to complete, or have completed their undergraduate course of study and plan to begin graduate work on a full-time basis. Junior Fellows have two years to complete their degree.

The second fellowship is the Senior Fellowship, which is awarded to teachers who wish to undertake work for a graduate degree on a part-time basis through summer and evening classes. Senior Fellows have up to five years to complete their degree

The fellowships are intended exclusively for graduate study leading to a master’s degree. James Madison Fellows may attend any accredited institution of higher education in the United States. Each individual entering the James Madison Fellowship Program will be expected to pursue and complete a master’s degree in one of the following (listed in order of the Foundation's preference):

  • Master of Arts (MA) in American history or in political science (also referred to as "government and politics" or as "government")
  • Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) concentrating on either American Constitutional history (in a history department) or American government, political institutions, and political theory (in a political science department)
  • Master of Education (MEd) or the Master of Arts or Master of Science in Education with a concentration in American history or American government, political institutions, and political theory

Benefits: The maximum amount of each award is $24,000, prorated over the individual period of study, thus making the James Madison Fellowship the leading award for secondary level teachers undertaking study of the Constitution. Fellowship payments cover the actual costs of tuition, required fees, books, and room and board but cannot exceed $12,000 per academic year. Normally, Fellows receive less than these maximum amounts.

Eligibility:
