The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded a $161,000 grant to John Kincaid, Meyner Professor of Government and Public Service, to conduct an institute on federalism for high school teachers.

In addition, Kincaid has been named Distinguished Federalism Scholar by the American Political Science Association (APSA). The award recognizes outstanding scholarly contributions to the study of federalism and intergovernmental relations. The APSA is the major professional society for the study of politics, government, and public policy in the United States and around the world.

Kincaid also used a $176,000 grant from the U.S. State Department to host 18 educators from 18 foreign nations for the 2001 Fulbright Summer Institute on “The U.S. Constitution: Origins, Evolution, and Contemporary Issues.” Earlier this year, he directed a two-month education program on federalism for Marina Spiliotopoulou, Counsel of the Republic in the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic of Cyprus. Kincaid presented these programs as director of Lafayette’s Meyner Center for the Study of State and Local Government.
