Carolina Food Program Summer Scholars Application Deadline

April 8

The Carolina Global Food Program, an initiative within the Global Research Institute, is announcing its fifth annual competitive scholarship program for the summer of 2022.

In the program a select number of Carolina Global Food Program Summer Scholars will be awarded up to $5,000 each to support food related summer research projects. Each awardee will explore a food topic relating to food or agriculture, broadly conceived. The topic may have an academic or policy focus or an emphasis on public service. As such, projects can be archivally based or involve field work or engagement experiences. Preference will be given to projects that are responsive to the University’s Global Guarantee initiative and the long-term advancement of food studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

International travel proposals are encouraged; however, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic all awards will be contingent upon the approval from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the current regulations of the chosen destination.

The awardees must be rising junior or senior undergraduate students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Application requirements:

  • A current resumé
  • A statement of intent, which should also reveal the applicant’s writing ability (1,000 word limit)
  • A detailed budget
  • Listing of other scholarship or award funding
  • A reference from a UNC faculty member willing to serve as a mentor throughout the project

Please email carolinaglobalfoodprogram@unc.edu for further information.
