Grant and Research Funding Assistance

Faculty who are seeking funding for arts and humanities research projects are invited to contact the Dresher Center for assistance with sponsor research and proposal development (narratives, budget preparation, subaward development, timelines and work plans, and application assembly). The Center serves as a liaison with sponsors, departments, the CAHSS Dean’s Office, the Office of Sponsored Programs, and other offices, and assists faculty with PI Eligibility procedures and proposal routing in Kuali, UMBC’s grants platform. The Dresher Center also helps faculty in developing proposals for internal research support.
