This is the 5th year UMBC has volunteered as an Ambassador Institution. This year we had the highest number of volunteers (10). This event is an amazing opportunity for research-active faculty and administrative staff to learn firsthand about current NIH funding and administration. Not only do research administrators learn about the administration, faculty have a chance to learn about funding opportunities, and can have one on one in person discussions with NIH program managers/technical experts. Most of the volunteers took advantage of attending one day for free when volunteering one day.
OVPR would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers this year!
