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: October 21, 2019 and February 21, 2020 at 5:00pm


NEW for Spring 2020: Please make note that we have set up a new email account for our grants program. Be sure to submit your applications to this new account, otherwise the faculty review committee will not receive your materials. The new email account is:


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.
