Carolina Women’s Center Faculty Scholar call for applications

The Carolina Women’s Center is accepting applications for its Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 Faculty Scholar. This program offers UNC-Chapel Hill faculty the opportunity to serve as a Faculty Scholar for the CWC for one semester. One Faculty Scholar will be chosen for each award semester.

The Carolina Women’s Center pursues gender equity at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Through education, advocacy, and interdisciplinary research, we build bridges and enhance the intellectual life and public engagement mission of the university.

The Faculty Scholar will be engaged in a project for publication, presentation, exhibition, composition or performance that is related to this mission. Projects that have the potential to engage other campus units and/or students will be especially favorably considered.

Faculty Scholars are expected to make a public presentation about their project during the award semester, and have an opportunity to participate in CWC programs, events, and initiatives. One Faculty Scholar will be chosen for each of the two award semesters. The deadline for applications is Monday, Nov. 15 no later than 5 p.m.

Projects are welcome from full-time faculty (fixed-term, tenured, or tenure-track) in any department, center or school of the University with three or more years of service. To download the application form, visit the Carolina Women’s Center’s website in the “forms” section at:
