Summer Fellowships

Applications for Summer 2023 are no longer being accepted.

The Dresher Center for the Humanities, in conjunction with the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) and the Vice President for Research, invites applications for Dresher Center Summer Fellowships. Proposals are welcome from all full-time tenured or tenure-track UMBC faculty, as well as full-time professors of the practice, who are pursuing humanities research in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Funding is intended to support and promote significant humanities research at UMBC. Fellows will receive support for summer research and for the advancement of a book manuscript, a major article, or a project of similar stature. Funding may also be used for assistance in developing extramural funding applications, including grant and fellowship applications, and for book proposals. Applications will be reviewed by the Dresher Center Advisory Board. Fellows (individuals or groups) will receive $6,000 per award. Between one and three fellowships will be awarded.
