Grants Administration

Housed in UMBC’s Center for Social Science Scholarship, the Maryland Institute for Policy, Analysis, and Research (MIPAR) is a grants administration unit that assists faculty members and departments by providing pre-award and post-grant management assistance.

The mission of MIPAR is to assist faculty members and departments in obtaining funding for their research and administering awards.  MIPAR also provides a formal mechanism for linking the analytical resources of the university with policy makers in the state and throughout the nation, using the expertise of distinguished faculty from UMBC and other universities.
