Faculty Fellowship Program
Program description: The IAAR Faculty Fellowship supports research by UNC-Chapel Hill faculty who are pursuing rigorous projects that focus on African Americans and others of African descent in the world. Projects demonstrate engagement with timely approaches, theories, and methods as well as policy and public interest. The fellowship is open to full-time clinical, research, tenured and tenure track faculty in the any discipline. In addition to receiving funding or course buy-outs, fellows are housed at IAAR for a semester or academic year. They also give one public talk about their research during the tenure of the fellowship.
Visiting Scholar Program
Program description: The Visiting Scholar Program provides an unpaid short-term residency opportunity for academic researchers who are based at other institutions and wish to make use of the IAAR and UNC’s resources toward the support of their research projects. Visiting Scholars must be working on projects that support the IAAR mission to cultivate engagement with critical questions and innovative and timely studies about people of African descent. Scholars may be in residence at the IAAR for anywhere from one week to one academic year. The length of a scholar’s visit is determined by the IAAR director on a case-by-case basis, and is contingent upon the scholar’s needs and IAAR available resources.
