The Kenan-Biddle Partnership, funded by the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust and The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, offers $5,000 grants 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.
Projects must have a student or students who serve as the project initiator. Proposals should be designed to stimulate collaborative arts, sciences and humanities projects between the two universities. The proposal should be specific about the activities and duties the participants would undertake and must include at least one public exhibition, presentation or performance. Preference will be given to proposals made jointly by students from both institutions.
