UMBC recognizes the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the research careers of many of our Assistant and Associate Professors. We also recognize the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on caregivers, and individuals from underrepresented groups.
UMBC has adapted our original On-Ramps program to address the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the research career trajectories of our Assistant and Associate Professors. The new On-Ramps for Research Career Acceleration program will accept applications in Fall 2022 to provide a cohort of UMBC Assistant and Associate professor faculty with 2-years of targeted research support (no-extension), beginning in the Spring 2023 semester.
Faculty should request the type of support needed to accelerate their research. Examples, might include, but are not limited to:
- Course release
- GA/RA support
- Grant Writing Support
- Research Writing Support
