Duke-UNC Faculty Small-Grant Program

With support from the Title VI program of the U.S. Department of Education, the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies is pleased to offer three small-grant programs for faculty at Duke and UNC:

Course Development Grants:

Two grants of $3,000 each are available for faculty at Duke and UNC to add Middle East content to an existing course or develop a new Middle East-related course. These grants are available only for 2010-2011 and 2011-2012. Recipients of these grants pledge to teach the course at least twice by the end of the 2013-2014 academic year.

These grants have been allocated for 2011. A new deadline for interested faculty will be provided towards the end of 2011 for 2012 applications.

Faculty Research Travel Grants:

A small pool of $5,000 per year ($2,500 each for Duke and UNC) is available to subsidize faculty research travel, with a preference for pilot projects leading to external grant applications.

These grants have been allocated for 2011. A new deadline for interested faculty will be provided towards the end of 2011 for 2012 applications.

Language Instruction Training Grants:

A small pool of $4,000 is available to support Duke and UNC language instructors' participation in pedagogical training programs with the National Middle East Language Resource Center (NMELRC) and the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), in order to increase language teaching proficiency on our campuses. The deadline for this particular grant is March 4, 2011.

The grant will cover travel and accommodation expenses, as the cost of the workshop will be covered by the NMELRC. For more information on the workshop, including dates and location, please visit the NMELRC page. For interested faculty members, please send an email to mideast@unc.edu, expressing interest in the grant, the reason you would like to participate in the workshop, and the amount you are requesting (for both travel and accommodation). A proposal and CV is not necessary.
