The Kenan-Biddle Partnership, funded by the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust and The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, offers  grants up to $5,000 to accepted project proposals that enhance the intellectual life at both universities by strengthening established or encouraging new collaborations between Duke and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Partnership awards approximately $50,000 in grant funds annually.

Applicant proposals should present an initiative that address social or environmental needs in their campus communities, the Triangle, or beyond. This opportunity is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.

Note that this is a collaborative opportunity between UNC and Duke, so teams must involve students from both institutions. Past projects have fallen into categories such as: arts, education, public health, athletics, socioeconomic development, clean technology and energy, and food. See the website FAQ for more details.
