CAHSS Centers: Summer Fellowships

  • CIRCA Summer Fellowship

The Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) invite applications from full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty from any CAHSS department for research support in the arts. Funding will support faculty projects that will enhance the prominence of the arts at UMBC and increase the quality and vitality of research or creative work in theory, scholarship, and/or practice in the arts.

 

  • CS3 Summer Fellowship

The Center for Social Science Scholarship (CS3), the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), and the Vice President for Research invite applications from full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty doing social science research. Fellows who aim to develop proposals that will lead to extramural funding or prestigious fellowships in the social sciences will receive assistance from the Center for Social Science Scholarship and from MIPAR, its grants administration unit.

 

  • Dresher Center Summer Fellowship

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.

 

  • IRC Research Fellowship

The Imaging Research Center (IRC), the College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS), the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) and the Vice President for Research, are pleased to announce a funding opportunity for two tenured or tenure-track faculty members, one in CAHSS and one in COEIT, to collaborate with each other, and the IRC, on research. The Fellowship can be used to advance a current project or begin an entirely new project. The IRC Faculty Research Fellowship (IRC-FRF) is intended as seed funding for media and visualization research that advances communication, expression, and/or visual analysis. Formerly for only CAHSS faculty, this year, given the IRC’s commitment to advancing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration at UMBC, we are piloting a reimagined and reformulated 2022 IRC-FRF to stimulate and catalyze collaborative research between the two colleges.
