IAH Faculty Fellowships offer Carolina faculty members a unique opportunity: a semester-long, on-campus fellowship to work on projects for publication, exhibition, composition, or performance.

IAH Fellowships are a key part of the College of Arts and Sciences’ efforts to retain the best faculty at Carolina. The fellowship centers on a weekly three-hour seminar and meal at Hyde Hall, where Fellows exchange ideas with eight to twelve peers from various disciplines. The IAH “buys out” the time of the faculty member from his or her department, allowing the Fellow a full semester to pursue a project that ultimately enriches his or her teaching.

Through IAH fellowships, faculty at all stages of their careers pursue projects vitally related to the arts, humanities or qualitative social sciences. In each group of Fellows, we support a blend of ranks and disciplines from within the College of Arts and Sciences.

  • IAH Faculty Fellowship semesters provide faculty an opportunity to produce a completed book, create musical and artistic projects, or refashion the courses they teach.
  • Chapman Family Faculty Fellowships recognize excellence in undergraduate education. Chapman Fellows are selected by the University Committee on Teaching Awards, affiliated with the Office of the Provost, and receive a stipend of $10,000 that the Fellow may use to support teaching, research, and service activities.

In a climate of increasing teaching loads and high expectations for publications, the IAH Fellowship provides the invaluable gift of time for faculty to refresh, renew and reinvigorate their teaching.
