The priority deadline for Summer 2017 and Academic Year 2017-2018 Rajkumar Faculty Fellowships is March 31, 2017. After this date, the Carolina Asia Center will accept applications on a rolling basis as funds remain available.

This fund can be used to conduct faculty research, form institutional partnerships, or attend a conference in Singapore. Competition for the awards is open to all tenured and tenure-track faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill. The Carolina Asia Center will award up to two fellowships, each worth up to $5,000. The travel can take place in Summer 2017 or Academic Year 2017-18.
