UMBC’s Postdoctoral Fellowship for Faculty Diversity is a 2-year in residence fellowship that supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure track appointments at UMBC. During the two-year appointment, UMBC provides fellows with teaching and research mentors, and professional development opportunities across campus. Fellowship recipients are provided with a stipend, health benefits, and additional funding for conference travel and the preparation of scholarly work, office space with a computer, library and other privileges at the university.
