Vimy Award Deadline

Monday, February 13, 2017

The Vimy Global Team Award was inspired by the adventures and pioneering spirit of UNC alumnus Peter McMillan ’81. This award is given annually to one interdisciplinary team of students (Vimy scholars) working collaboratively to pursue research or service projects outside the United States. Made possible by the Global Education Fund, up to $15,000 is provided to fund a summer team project abroad. This award is intended to support UNC undergraduate and master’s-level students in completing self-directed or self-designed group projects internationally during the summer.

The award provides funding for travel as well as supplies needed to implement the project. Learn more and apply!
