The North Carolina Consortium for Middle East Studies is pleased to offer a small pool of several thousand dollars to subsidize faculty research travel during academic year 2022-2023 and summer 2023.
Please note: Faculty at UNC, Duke, and other NC institutions MUST adhere to domestic, international, and university travel guidelines, as travel is still restricted by university campuses. For UNC travel policies and exceptions, see here; for Duke “essential travel” policies, see here.
Faculty may also submit applications for “remote” research, including, but not limited to such expenses as the purchase of research materials, virtual conference or seminar attendance/participation, transcription fees, or online language courses (for courses not offered at Duke, UNC, or other NC institutions).
Important: Faculty who are awarded the above grant, and who wish to travel internationally, must work with their respective center/campus on obtaining travel permissions from the U.S. Department of Education at least 45 days before departure (preferably 60 days). Airfare cannot be purchased before approval is granted by the U.S. Department of Education.
Please submit a 1- to 3-page proposal, your CV, and a budget in one PDF document.
