Institute now accepting applications for Academic Leadership Program, Faculty Fellows
July 27, 2017 | M. Clay
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities’ two fellowships, the Faculty Fellows Program and the Academic Leadership Program, are now accepting applications.
The Faculty Fellowship
The program starts with a semester leave for faculty across disciplines to focus on their research, art, and scholarship. The fellows meet weekly to support each other’s work.
Kumarini Silva (Communication), a fellow and now a Faculty Advisory Board Member says the fellowship is an innovative program for research methods. “It encourages us to think about the different ways people understand our work. It allows you this freedom to rethink your research in such a way that it translates to this much larger audience.”
The application deadline is Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. For more information on eligibility and the application, visit the Faculty Fellowships Program Page.
To help support the application process, the Institute is hosting a proposals workshop, Monday, Aug. 28, 2017 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. This event fills up quickly and there are limited spots. “Register as soon as you can,” says Philip Hollingsworth, Program Coordinator for Faculty Programs.
The Academic Leadership Program
The fellowship develops leadership skills, grows a support network, and opens faculty to a host of opportunities including a week at the internationally renowned Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro. A $5,000 stipend is included.
“Since its creation in 2006, 53 current UNC leaders are ALP Fellows, said IAH Director Mark Katz. “It is yet another way in which the Institute supports faculty in achieving their greatest potential.”
This year, instead of a nomination, the application must be accompanied by two recommendations. The deadline for the application/recommendations is Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. For more information, visit the Academic Leadership Program page.
