Graduate Student Research Fellowships

Call for Proposals for Fall 2016 Graduate Student Research Fellowships

Dresher Center Graduate Student Fellowship Application

Application Deadline is March 15, 2016

The Dresher Center for the Humanities invites applications for two residential Graduate Student Research Fellowships. Funding will be given for the fall 2016 semester and is intended to support promising research by graduate students in the humanities. The fellowships are open to all UMBC doctoral and master’s level students working on humanities-related research projects that will culminate in a dissertation or master’s thesis.

Fellows will reside two days a week in a shared office in the Dresher Center during the fall semester and will receive up to $1,000 to be used for research travel, materials, or other directly-related research expenses. Fellows will present a session as part of the CURRENTS: Humanities Work Now series and attend the Humanities Forum and other Dresher Center events and workshops.

After the fall semester, fellows will submit a summary of the work they accomplished during the semester, as well as a statement on the progress made towards the completion of their dissertation or master’s thesis.
