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.
Applications must be submitted through the online application. Deadline: February 26, 2024. (We only accept Course Development applications in our spring grant cycle. Please do not apply in the fall semester.)
Research and travel grants (maximum award amount: $1,500)
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.
Applications must be submitted through the online application. The application site is open for applications: due September 27, 2023 and February 26, 2024 by 5pm.
Eligibility: Applicants must be Carolina faculty with full-time appointments in the College of Arts and Sciences. All faculty who receive grants from the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies will be expected to complete a brief follow-up report.
Faculty that are receiving research fund support from the Center this year: you are not eligible for research and travel grants. (You may apply for course development grants.)
Application Procedures: Only completed applications will be considered. Applications must be submitted through the online application.
