Institute of African American Research 2015 - 2016 Faculty Fellowship

The Institute of African American Research welcomes applications for its Faculty Fellowship Program for the academic year 2015-2016. The IAAR expects to make two awards for this program period.

The purpose of the program is to support current research by UNC-CH faculty who are engaged in studies of African Americans and/or the broader African diaspora. Fellows’ projects should focus directly on this subject area with explicit attention to the experiences of people of African descent within the diaspora. 

Thematic Focus: The theme for the 2015-2016 fellowship competition is Black Communities, Well-Being and Security.  Proposals must involve a study of the well-being and security of communities of black-identified people anywhere in the world.  Projects should demonstrate a focus on the wellness or quality of life for black communities.  They should involve an investigation of what enhances or challenges black communities’ ability to have a positive quality of life and be secure. For this competition, we understand “community” broadly, not restricted to residential areas but inclusive of some form of collectivity of black-identified people.

Deadline:  February 20, 2015, by 5 p.m.
