Please note the following change: Full-time Professors of the Practice are now also eligible to apply for these fellowships.
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 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 the completion 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 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.
