The National Endowment for the Humanities is marking the approach of the U.S. Constitution's bicentennial with a program that will offer young scholars the opportunity to conduct research or undertake a writing project on the 198-year-old document.

The program is part of an neh "special initiative" on the bicentennial that has already involved grants totaling nearly $11.5 million for more than 160 projects related to the Constitution. These include summer seminars for high-school teachers, syndicated newspaper columns on the Constitution by leading authori-4ties, lecture and seminar series, and a public-television program.

The new program will provide grants of between $1,800 and $2,200 to some 50 to 75 high-school and college students 21 years old or under to complete independent research projects under the guidance of a teacher or professor of the humanities.

The deadline for applications is Dec. 15. Winners will be announced in March 1986. For applications, write: neh, Office of the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, 1100 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20506.
