Launched in Fall 2013, the Global Partnership Awards are provided to help UNC faculty, staff and students sustain and develop partnerships with international institutions, with preference given to proposals that include designated UNC strategic or emerging partners.

A total of $20,000 is available each fiscal year for awards between $500 and $3,000. For the 2013-2014 award cycle, an average award of $1,400 was given. These awards are made possible through the Chancellor’s Global Education Fund, the University’s only unrestricted pan-university fund to support Carolina international activity.

For more information about application requirements and instructions, please visit the Global Partnership Award main website.
