Emerging Scholars Program

The Emerging Scholars Program provides departments, centers, and programs with funding to host advanced graduate students and junior faculty from underrepresented communities on campus for a two-day immersion experience. The Emerging Scholars Program seeks to (a) elevate the visibility of UMBC within networks of graduate students and junior faculty working with underrepresented communities; (b) increase the number of job applicants from underrepresented communities; (c) strengthen information sharing and candidate identification strategies for future recruitment of underrepresented faculty; and (d) enhance the exposure of UMBC students to a pedagogically and demographically diverse faculty.
