President and Fellows of Harvard College (Cambridge, MA 02138-3800)
Daniel Carpenter (Project Director: February 2007 to March 2016)
The American Republic Initiative at Harvard University

Endowment and bridge funding for a visiting faculty position in American Political Thought and Institutions, graduate student fellowships, and an annual summer institute for high school teachers.

Harvard University is applying for a We the People Challenge Grant of $1,000,000 to be matched by funds of a minimum of $3,000,000 we will raise in order to fund a new Program on the American Republic. Anticipated endowment income will be used for three core purposes: (1) a new faculty position in American Political Thought and Institutions, (2) two graduate student dissertation fellowships in the Study of the American Republic, and (3) an annual two-day summer institute for high school teachers, starting with the Boston Public School system. Near term funds will enhance the building and maintenance of an information technology infrastructure that can enhance education at Harvard and elsewhere, as well as grants for course development and educational technology and materials development. Existing funds (separate from this application) will support a related speaker series and an annual Conference on the American Republic.
