      **Congressional Research Awards Announcement**

      DEADLINE: Proposals must be postmarked no later than February 1, 2004

      The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants
      totaling $35,000 in 2004 to fund research on congressional leadership
      and the U.S. Congress. The competition is open to individuals with a
      serious interest in studying Congress. Political scientists,
      historians, biographers, scholars of public administration or
      American studies, and journalists are among those eligible. The
      Center encourages graduate students to apply and awards a significant
      portion of the funds for dissertation research. Undergraduate or pre-
      Ph.D. study, research teams of two or more individuals, and
      organizations are not eligible.

      There is no standard application form. Applicants are responsible for
      showing the relationship between their work and the awards program
      guidelines. Applications are accepted at any time. All application
      materials must be postmarked on or before February 1, 2004. Awards
      will be announced in March 2004. Complete information about
      eligibility and application procedures may be found at The Center's
