Please note that for 2016-2017 there are new protocols and procedures for faculty grants.


Second Round of Grants:
NEW FOR 2016-2017: Food for All Course Development and Course Enhancement Grants
The deadline for applications is October 24, 2016, 5pm.

Logo-and-TaglineThe University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s university-wide academic theme for 2015-2017 is “Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives.” With this theme, the University is challenging all areas of UNC to examine wide-ranging topics including food cultures and nutrition, food security, world hunger and more. The two years of “Food for All” includes projects, services and events on campus and in the Chapel Hill community.

To support this University initiative, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is offering course enhancement and course development funds, which will support faculty who are interested in incorporating a Jewish food component into courses to be taught in the academic year of 2016-2017. Courses should be open to enrollment by undergraduate students (though graduate students may also be included) and may be in any department. Course development and course enhancement awards may be used for travel and research; for purchasing or development of print, electronic or audiovisual course materials; and for hiring a graduate assistant. These funds can be used for one-time expenditures, including field trips, symposia featuring student research, guest speakers and extracurricular activities that support a component with significant Jewish food content. The Center also supports all courses in which students will create posters on Jewish food, which will be exhibited at the symposium “Jewish Food in the Global South” to be held at UNC in Spring 2017.

Please contact jewishstudies@unc.edu if you have questions.

The deadline for applications is 5 pm on October 24, 2016.

Thanks to  generous private support, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is able to  offer a series of grants for faculty development. Faculty may apply to more  than one grant simultaneously.

There are two categories of grants: course development / course enhancement awards and research and travel grants.
Award amounts:  $1,000-2,000
Deadlines:
Fall Semester, October 24, 2016
Spring Semester: February 20, 2017

 


Course development / course enhancement funds (award amounts:  $1,000-2,000)
With these grants, the Carolina Center  for Jewish Studies supports faculty who are interested in developing new Jewish Studies courses in the College of Arts and Sciences. Courses should be open to enrollment by undergraduate students (though graduate students may also be included) and may be in any department. We are particularly interested in courses that will be  regularly taught. Course development awards may be used for travel and research; for purchasing or development of  print, electronic or audiovisual course materials; and for summer salary stipends. We will also accept proposals that seek to expand or enhance the level of Jewish Studies content in an established course. These funds can be used for one-time expenditures, including field trips, symposia featuring student research, guest speakers, and extracurricular activities that support a course with significant Jewish Studies content. Ideally, faculty applying for these grants should plan on using the grant well before the end of the current fiscal year.

With these grants, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies supports faculty research and travel,  including travel to present papers at scholarly meetings. This grant can be used to reimburse travel  costs pertaining to research projects and/or costs for materials required for  research or publishing, as well as to reimburse costs for travel, room, board,  and registration costs at domestic or international conferences.
