Call for Proposals: King’s College London and UNC Joint Projects


October 8, 2015 | Angie Barker

Call for Proposals Deadline: Friday, November 6

UNC faculty and graduate students from participating units may apply to the King’s College Fund for support for projects and collaborative events that advance the relationship between UNC and KCL. This program is supported by the Dean’s Office, the Institute for the Arts and Humanities, and participating departments and programs in the College of Arts and Sciences. All proposals should be approved by the Chair of the faculty/graduate students’ department or curriculum.

Funds may be requested to cover travel by UNC faculty and graduate students, costs of housing and hospitality for local events, and other expenses if appropriate. Support for each funded proposal will typically range between $2,000 and $8,000. Please be aware that in many cases, not all program costs will be fully covered by the KCL Fund. Thus we encourage applicants to seek additional sources of support. Also note that while the KCL Fund can be used to pay for travel for UNC faculty and students, it will not pay for overseas lodging (an expense that KCL units should cover, per the UNC-KCL agreement). Reciprocally, the Fund can support lodging expenses (but not travel costs) for visitors from KCL.

Send the completed application form to the IAH as an e-mail attachment to iahapply@unc.edu.

A steering committee consisting of representatives from all participating departments and curricula will discuss the proposals and recommend the allocation of payments from the King’s College Fund.

Participating units (those paying yearly dues to the Fund) currently include: Institute for the Arts and Humanities; English and Comparative Literature; History; Music; Religious Studies; Classics, Global Studies; Geography; and Peace, War and Defense. Other departments are welcome to join.

For more information about the UNC/King’s College partnership, please contact IAH Coordinator for Faculty Programs Philip Hollingsworth (pholling@email.unc.edu).
