Dirksen Congressional Center
|Category: Democracy & Government
The Centerís Robert H. Michel Special Projects grants seek to enhance understanding of the United States Congress. The Center serves two primary audiences: scholars who conduct research about Congress and teachers who teach social studies, history, political science, and other subjects that relate to Congress. The grants are intended to fund work that advances the public understanding of the federal legislature through research and teaching. Projects of interest include conferences that bring together congressional scholars, the collection or publication of resources useful for research, efforts by teachers to develop creative ways to teach about Congress, and publications, especially those with appeal beyond academia. The projects must have as their central focus, the U.S. Congress. Of particular interest are endeavors that have the potential to reach a broad audience. An e-mail letter of inquiry should be sent to Frank Mackaman. Additional information is available on the Web site.
