There is not minimum or maximum length, but the goal is for the project to last the duration of the summer.


The Carolina Global Food Program, an initiative within the Global Research Institute, offers an annual competitive scholarship program for the summer. Carolina Global Food Program “Summer Scholars” will be awarded up to $5,000 each to support food related summer research projects. Each awardee will explore a food topic relating to food or agriculture, broadly conceived. The topic may have an academic or policy focus or an emphasis on public service.

Projects can be archivally based or involve field work or engagement experiences. Preference will be given to projects that are responsive to the goals of the university theme “Food for All” and the long-term advancement of food studies at UNC.
