Faculty Publication Fund

The Fund for Faculty Publications addresses growing demand from UNC faculty for support of book and journal publication fees. Certain book publishers and open access journals are outlets that typically assess these fees, but other traditional journals, especially in the sciences, do as well, and increasingly faculty are paying such charges out of personal funds.  Awards will be made in amounts up to $2000 to reimburse charges for publication fees.  Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.  Apply here.
