With Title VI funding from the Department of Education, the Consortium is able to offer co-sponsorship funding to units and organizations at institutions of higher education across North Carolina seeking support for projects that increase awareness of the history and cultures of the Middle East and North Africa.

Deadline: Ongoing
Paperwork: North Carolina Consortium for Middle East Studies Funding Application

Funding for projects that meet this goal will not normally exceed $200, and the amount of support the Consortium offers should be matched by funds from at least one other unit on your campus. To encourage interdisciplinary work, preference is given to proposals that involve more than one department or school. Also, we look favorably upon proposals that engage faculty, students, and staff, and we discourage using funds to purchase food. Projects must be organized by a person or unit affiliated with Duke, UNC, or the North Carolina Consortium for Middle East Studies. The North Carolina Consortium for Middle East Studies does not fund or sponsor events that are primarily political, or presentations by current ambassadors, politicians, or government officials (domestic or international).

If you are interested in seeking funding, please fill out the North Carolina Consortium for Middle East Studies Funding Application and submit to Griffin Orlando (Duke applicants) at griffin.orlando@duke.edu or to mideast@unc.edu (UNC + statewide applicants).
