The PROMISE Program at UMBC is proud to support the academic and professional development of graduate students and postdocs from all backgrounds and in all fields. Programs of PROMISE are sponsored by the UMBC Graduate School and the National Science Foundation. Broadly, graduate students and postdocs can participate in PROMISE regardless of their status (full-time, part-time), ethnicity, citizenship, discipline, or source of funding. Narrowly, students and postdocs who are underrepresented will be strongly supported as they utilize the services and resources of PROMISE; these students can be encouraged to consider PROMISE to be one of their major mechanisms of support.
Some of the programs that we host or co-sponsor include:
Is PROMISE for you? Yes! You are invited!
PROMISE is part of the National Science Foundation's Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP).
