For Carolina faculty

Global Partnership Awards

Global Partnership Awards are designed to develop and sustain partnerships between UNC-Chapel Hill and international institutions, typically colleges or universities. Awards are made to support Carolina faculty, staff and graduate students who engage in or develop opportunities for collaborative activity, with preference given to proposals that include designated UNC-Chapel Hill strategic or key partners, although applications can involve other international institutions.

Curriculum Development Awards for COIL

These awards, offered through the Connecting Carolina Classrooms with the World initiative, support Carolina faculty members interested in working with a colleague at an international partner institution to develop collaborative activities for students in their regularly scheduled courses. Faculty can also request funds to hire a graduate student teaching assistant in the first semester in which the course is taught, to provide support in the development or implementation of COIL activities.

For Carolina students
