BUILD Training Program (BTP)

The BUILD Training Program (BTP) at UMBC is a comprehensive program of financial and programmatic support made possible through funding from the National Institutes of Health.

Students accepted into this structured program will receive partial support for tuition expenses with a 12-month stipend to be applied toward required summer activities, assigned campus housing, and other educational expenses.

BTP Trainees are required to participate in a six-week (online & on-campus) summer bridge with residency on campus, and then reside in the STEM Living and Learning Community (LLC) in the following academic year.

Other benefits include extensive advising, academic support, special programming, career exploration, and a series of BUILD group research opportunities.
