FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A University of Arkansas student has been awarded a James Madison Fellowship of $24,000 to help her pay for graduate studies.

Annie Williams, who is enrolled in the College of Education and Health Professions, was chosen as the Arkansas recipient of the fellowship.

The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation generally selects one winner from each state, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories each year.

Applicants for the fellowship must be committed to teaching American history, American government or social studies full time in grades 7-12.

They also must demonstrate a commitment to civic responsibilities and to professional and collegial activities and be pursuing a master's degree.
