Undergraduate Research Awards

**NEW! The Center for Social Science Scholarship is sponsoring four Social Science URAs, which provide up to $1,500 to undergraduate researchers whose work, in collaboration with a faculty mentor, uses social science to explore the world or address socially relevant concerns. Recipients agree to present their work as part of an URCAD panel and other groups of social science students at UMBC. To be eligible for a Social Science URA, you must be enrolled as a UMBC student for the duration of the work proposed and must adhere to all the requirements of the URA program. For more information, contact Christine Mallinson, Director, Center for Social Science Scholarship, via email at

Applications will be open soon, with a deadline of May 1.
