The Global Partnership Awards are designed to help sustain and develop partnerships between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and international institutions. Awards will be made to support faculty, staff and students engaging in collaborations with colleagues at international institutions (typically colleges or universities), with preference given to proposals that include designated UNC strategic or emerging partners
. Individuals collaborating with colleagues at any international institution are welcome to apply.
Administered by the Global Relations office, Global Partnership Awards are supported by the Chancellor’s Global Education Fund
, the only pan-University, unrestricted fund that supports UNC’s top global priorities.
Awards are intended to be used for travel expenses (airfare, transportation, lodging, per diem) for UNC faculty, staff or students to visit a partner institution to facilitate joint research or course development, organize conferences/symposia, present papers/lectures, provide training, serve on graduate student committees or engage in other collaborative activities. Other expenses may be considered. However, proposed initiatives must advance a partnership between institutions and not solely enable the applicant to conduct personal research or projects.
Awards cannot be used for stipends, honorarium, consulting fees or for students to enroll in coursework or study abroad programs/exchanges.
