This two year Fellowship allows a Ph.D. candidate to conduct field research in one year and then teach a course that is directly related to that research in the second year.
This fellowship is named in honor of UNC anthropology professor James L. Peacock for his distinguished and longstanding commitment to global education.
Only Ph.D. candidates who are ABD may apply. Such candidates should also be ready to defend their dissertation by the end of the two year fellowship.
True to its pan-university nature, the Center for Global Initiatives solicits applications from Ph.D. candidates from all disciplines and departments.
Estimated Available Funds: $15,000 per year for 2 years (i.e. a total of $30,000)
Estimated Number of Awards: 1
Estimated Number of Applicants: 10
The first $15,000 installment of a REACH fellowship provides recipients with a one-year award to support internationally-oriented dissertation field research abroad. The second $15,000 installment provides recipients with a one-year salary to teach an undergraduate course at UNC-Chapel Hill that is informed by this research.
Note: The Reach Fellowship does not provide health insurance or tuition remission in addition to the award amount. However, the Center for Global Initiatives can deduct funds from the $15,000 award in order to cover both health insurance and tuition if needed.
In the first year, the award is made as a stipend, awarded in the form of a check that is issued twice per year. In the second year, the award is coordinated through the Fellow's home department.
