IAH Faculty Fellowships provide semester-long fellowships on campus for UNC faculty members from the College of Arts and Sciences to pursue research and projects for publication, exhibition, composition and performance.
The program provides funding for each Fellow’s department to cover their semester leave and pays for the weekly seminar, during which the IAH provides a meal for each class of eight to 12 Fellows to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from other disciplines.
IAH Fellowships support work related to the arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences.
IAH Faculty Fellowships are awarded for proposals that are related in some important way to the arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences.
Professors in tenure-track positions of all ranks are encouraged to apply. The Institute seeks a blend of ranks and disciplines for each class of Fellows. Faculty members may apply for an IAH Fellowship as early as their second year at UNC-Chapel Hill. Persons holding fixed-term appointments who are in at least their fourth year are also eligible if they will be returning to their department the following semester.
Past Fellows may apply for an IAH fellowship in the fifth year after their previous award.
Joint proposals from two faculty members are also accepted.
Applicants must receive endorsement from their department's chair.
The application process begins in the fall of each year, and deadlines for applications are announced in late spring or early summer for the next academic year. Applicants may apply for either the fall or spring semester of the following academic year.
The application includes:
- IAH application form
- Current CV (abbreviated to 5 pages)
- Four-page description of the project
- Chair recommendation form
- Artist history form (for artists and composers)
The application deadline for the 2013-2014 academic year is Friday, September 28, 2012. To apply, follow this link to our "Apply" page.
IAH Fellows are selected by the Institute's Faculty Advisory Board, comprising IAH Fellows and directors. We seek a blend of ranks and discipline in each group of Fellows.
Note: IAH Fellowships have become increasingly competitive as our application numbers grow each year. For this reason, we urge both first-time and repeat applicants to attend the Grants Mentoring Workshop and consult on their draft proposals with past or current IAH Fellows or IAH Director John McGowan (email@example.com).
