Two Black Women Named Postdoctoral Fellows at the University of Maryland Baltimore County

Three women make up the third cohort of the Postdoctoral Fellows for Faculty Diversity at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. The program is a two-year in-residence fellowship that supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure track appointments. During the two-year appointment, the university provides fellows with teaching and research mentors, and professional development opportunities across campus. Fellowship recipients are provided with a stipend, health benefits, and additional funding for conference travel and the preparation of scholarly work.

Black women are two of this year’s three fellows.
