The Dresher Center for the Humanities invites applications for this new summer fellowship for Summer 2022. Proposals are welcome from all lecturers and adjunct faculty pursuing humanities research in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, whether employed full or part-time. Adjunct faculty must be teaching at UMBC at the time of application with the expectation that they will also teach at UMBC in the academic semester or year following the summer funding. Funding is intended to support and promote significant humanities research at UMBC. Fellows will receive support for research at any stage of a major project, and for the advancement of a book manuscript, an article, a web resource, a book proposal, or a project of similar stature. Funding may also be used to develop 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. One fellowship will be awarded.
