Research Symposium: American Freedom and Liberty
Florida Atlantic University's Jack Miller Forum (JMF) is funding two undergraduate research grants, and one graduate research grant. Each award is $250 dollars. The purpose of the research is to promote the study and exploration of American founding principles, relating to the American founding, American political thought, American political development, liberty, and freedom.
In 2009, the Jack Miller Forum hosted its first major conference on American Democracy and Civics Education. The four-day event brought national and international scholars from a variety of backgrounds to Boca Raton to present academic and policy papers on a wide range of topics.
General support for the conference was provided by the Department of Political Science at Florida Atlantic University, the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts & Letters, the National Endowment of the Humanities and the Jack Miller Center.
