The Horizons program is sponsored by The UMBC Graduate School, and UMBC’s grant from NSF’s Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) in collaboration with the University of Maryland College Park and the University of Maryland Baltimore. Our program, PROMISE: Maryland’s AGEP, will continue to build upon the excellent results that we achieve through partnering with summer research programs throughout the MD/DC/VA region as well as our LSAMP, McNair, MARC U*STAR and Meyerhoff Scholarship programs, to provide a seamless path through graduate school for all interested students.
Participants in Summer Horizons will have an opportunity to:
- Learn about graduate school and the application process (e.g. GRE, funding, applications)
- Meet with faculty, tour laboratories and talk with current graduate students about their experiences, motivations, and successes in graduate school, and
- Hear a motivational speech from our President, Dr. Freeman Hrabowski.
