Summer Fellowships for Lecturers and Adjunct Faculty

Applications for Summer 2024 are due February 15, 2024

The Dresher Center for the Humanities invites applications for Dresher Center Summer Fellowships for Lecturers and Adjuncts. Funding is intended to support and promote significant humanities research at UMBC. The Dresher Center Summer Fellow will receive support for summer research and 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, book proposals, and grant project applications. 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 summer funding. Proposals will be reviewed by the Dresher Center Advisory Board.

One Dresher Center Summer Fellowship will be awarded to an individual or group, with a total remuneration of $6,000 for use in summer 2024. Funds supporting this initiative are provided by the Dresher Center for the Humanities Endowment.
