Announcing the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 CURS Scholar-in-Residence Opportunity

With support from the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts & Sciences, the Center for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) is pleased to solicit applications again for its Scholar-in-Residence Program. The CURS Scholar-in-Residence Program provides an opportunity for faculty members in the College of Arts & Sciences to concentrate on developing major research proposals by providing funds for a course buyout and for proposal development expenses. In addition, the CURS Scholar-in-Residence will have full administrative support from the Center’s financial and clerical support staff. This opportunity will be provided during either the fall semester 2016 or spring semester 2017 based on the candidate’s preference. Laura Lopez-Sanders from the Department of Sociology is the Spring 2016 Scholar-in-Residence. As a result, faculty members from that department are ineligible for the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 program. The complete details of the program and applications are available at http://curs.unc.edu/programs/scholar-in-residence-program/.

Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 7, 2016. The candidates will be notified of the outcome of the selection process in mid March 2016.
