Fall deadlines announced for IAH Fellowships and other funding opportunities
The IAH is pleased to announce the following application deadlines:
NEH Summer Stipends support individuals working full-time on a humanities project at any stage of development by providing $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time research and writing. Faculty members teaching full-time at colleges and universities must be nominated by their institutions to apply for a summer stipend. At UNC-Chapel Hill, the Institute for the Arts and Humanities’ Faculty Advisory Board serves as the nominations committee.
The IAH announces for the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) the Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars, supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. These fellowships support long-term, unusually ambitious projects in the humanities and related social sciences that will result in a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. Burkhardt Fellowships support an academic year of residence at any one of the national residential research centers participating in the program and provide a stipend of $75,000. UNC will provide the successful applicant an additional semester of paid leave as an IAH Fellow.
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities offers UNC faculty members a unique opportunity: a semester-long, on-campus fellowship to work on projects for publication, exhibition, composition or performance. The fellowship centers on a weekly three-hour seminar at Hyde Hall where Fellows exchange ideas with eight to twelve peers from various disciplines over a shared meal. Application materials for IAH Faculty Fellowships and Digital Innovation Fellowships must be submitted online by September 27. All UNC tenured and tenure-track faculty in the arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences may apply for either the fall or spring semester.
Applications and nominations for the Chapman Family Teaching Award are due to the Provost’s office. The award, which honors excellence in undergraduate teaching, provides a semester’s leave at the IAH as a Faculty Fellow and a $10,000 stipend.
The ALP helps prepare and support current and emerging academic leaders at UNC. Eight Fellows, selected annually from units throughout the University, engage in a series of activities to help them develop leadership skills, clarify their career commitments, build a leadership network within the campus and extend their contacts to other leaders beyond the University. Because the ALP requires a significant time commitment, a flexible use stipend of $5,000 is provided for each participant. ALP Fellows and their nominators/recommenders must be tenured faculty or fixed-term faculty with at least 7 years of service at UNC in a primarily instructional role.
