      DEADLINE: Congressional Research Awards Announcement

      All proposals must be received no later than February 1, 2007.

      The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants totaling
      $30,000 in 2007 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 who have successfully
      defended their dissertation prospectus to apply and awards a significant
      portion of the funds for dissertation research.

      The awards program does not fund undergraduate or pre-Ph.D. study.
      Organizations are not eligible. Research teams of two or more individuals
      are 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. Incomplete applications will NOT be
      forwarded to the screening committee for consideration.

      All application materials must be received no later than February 1, 2007.
      Awards will be announced in March 2007.

      Complete information about eligibility and application procedures may be
      found at The Center's Web site:

      The Center, named for the late Senate Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen, is
      a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit research and educational organization
      devoted to the study of Congress and its leaders. Since 1978, the
      Congressional Research Awards (formerly the Congressional Research Grants)
      program has paid out $680,000 to support 350 projects.
