Newport Beach : Study-Research Grant Awarded to Student
Jeff Glueck, a 17-year-old junior at Newport Harbor High School, is among three California students winning grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities to write research papers on the U.S. Constitution.
Glueck, the son of Dr. and Mrs. Michael Glueck of Newport Beach, entered the national competition last December. Students from throughout the nation were invited to submit proposals for writing projects. Winning students, including Glueck, will get $1,800 from the National Endowment to work full time for nine weeks during the summer, researching and writing under the close supervision of a teacher.
Glueck’s paper will be on the historical factors that led James Madison to frame the separation of church and state doctrine embodied in the Bill of Rights. His research adviser will be Fabian Giroux, retired history department head at Newport Harbor High.
A total of 66 high school students from throughout the nation were awarded the study-research grants. The other two California winners are from Los Angeles and Claremont.
