Event Funding

The Mideast center recently reapplied for its Title VI grant (Higher International Education) from the U.S. Department of Education. This grant supports the various activities of the center, including funds for events on campus. The Mideast center should learn the result of its application around early October, 2014. Until then, we are unable to accept any event funding requests. Please check in with us later this fall.

Deadline: On hold
Paperwork: Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies Funding Application

The Mideast center, in conjunction with the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies, welcomes proposals from UNC units and organizations seeking support for projects that increase awareness of the history and culture of the Middle East and Muslim civilizations.

Funding for projects that meet this goal will not normally exceed $200, and the amount of support the Center offers should be matched by funds from at least one other unit on campus. To encourage interdisciplinary work, preference is given to proposals that involve more than one department or school. Also, we look favorably upon proposals that engage faculty, students, and staff, and we discourage using funds to purchase food. Projects must be organized by a person or unit affiliated with UNC.

There is no deadline for submitting a funding request.

If you are interested in seeking funding, please fill out the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies Funding Application in full and submit it via email to mideast@unc.edu.
