CWC Faculty Scholars Grant 2020

February 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - March 31, 2020 @ 11:59 pm

The deadline for the CWC Faculty Scholars Grant has been extended to Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

The Carolina Women’s Center (CWC) offers UNC-Chapel Hill faculty an opportunity to receive a Faculty Scholar award for the academic year 2020-2021. Three Faculty Scholars are selected yearly. Each Faculty Scholar will receive funding up to $10,000 to support a scholarly project. Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in CWC events and meet with the CWC staff, former CWC Faculty Scholars, and invited scholars from other centers or departments.

Proposed projects should address topics related to women, sex, gender equity, and/or all intersections of gender. Thus, projects may focus on a wide range of questions. They could explore any of the following: gendered identities and experiences, including but not limited to femininities, masculinities, and gender non-conforming identities and experiences; intersectional analyses of gender; differences based on sex; difference and diversity within and between categories; and gender equity and gender equality. Projects might also bring a gendered analysis to bear on topics seemingly not connected to gender. Projects should clearly articulate how they fulfill this requirement, and we welcome projects from all units of the University.

Projects may take the form of teaching, research, engaged scholarship, or service. Projects that include opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to develop meaningful skills and experiences and/or that foster inter-departmental or interdisciplinary collaboration are especially welcome.

If you have any questions about whether your project is suitable for this award, please contact Shauna Cooper, Faculty Chair of the Awards Committee, at shauna.cooper@unc.edu.

The 2020-2021 application can be found at this link. All required materials should be submitted via email to cwcawards@unc.edu by 11:59pm, Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
