The Kenan-Biddle Partnership
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.
Do you have a project idea to affect positive community change utilizing the intellect, talent, and resources at both UNC Chapel Hill and Duke University? The Kenan-Biddle Partnership Grant may be the perfect boost to either get your new project off the ground or push an existing one into high gear!
The Kenan-Biddle Partnership awards seed grants to 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. Each team is required to have at least one student member currently enrolled at UNC and Duke.
During this unprecedented time, we have all been required to form and to strengthen our virtual communications and collaborations in creative ways. To support the necessity for virtual communities, this year the Kenan-Biddle Partnership grants will fund projects that are designed for building remote communities.
The application period has ended. (For reference: fillable application PDF.)
