Preliminary Program


This project is supported by the Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) program of the National Science Foundation, Awards #2324412, 2324413, and 2324414.  Through a series of convenings and a final symposium, this project develops best practices for a regional pipeline program to establish internships in research administration for students of the seven four-year Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in Maryland and Delaware. The internships will allow students to gain experience and familiarity with research administration as a career pathway. By recruiting and retaining the next generation of research administrators, this internship program helps expand and diversify the research administration workforce and builds research capacity, while establishing a model that other institutions can follow.

The project “GRANTS MaDE: Grant and Research Administration Networking and Training for Students at Maryland and Delaware MSIs” has been approved by the UMBC Institutional Review Board, Protocol #1222.
