In addition to pursuing their research agenda, fellows teach one course a year in the host department. Successful candidates for the Program are selected on the basis of scholarly promise and potential to add to the diversity of the UMBC community. Applicants must have completed their doctoral degree when the term of appointment commences and must be no more than three years beyond receiving the Ph.D.
