The Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs offers funding to develop and sustain global partnerships and international collaboration. This funding is made possible by the Chancellor’s Global Education Fund, the unrestricted pan-University fund that supports Carolina’s top global priorities.

Curriculum Development Awards for COIL

Curriculum Development Awards for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) support Carolina faculty members interested in working with a colleague at an international institution to develop virtual collaboration for students in existing courses. Faculty members design collaborative projects or assignments to connect students from the two courses, one at each institution, over a period of at least three weeks. Faculty can also request funds to hire a graduate student teaching assistant to provide support in the development or implementation of COIL activities in the first semester in which the course is taught.
