In addition to the countless performance and exhibition opportunities available to all students in the arts, Linehan Artist Scholars frequently participate in faculty creative research. Several Dance Scholars perform with the Baltimore Dance Project, the resident contemporary dance company at UMBC. Music Scholars often perform with the UMBC Symphony, the Percussion Ensemble, the Jazz Ensemble and Ruckus, UMBC’s professional ensemble dedicated to the performance contemporary music.
Linehan Theatre Scholars are often featured in leading roles in the Proscenium and Black Box Theatre productions. Linehan Theatre Scholars have performed at the Kennedy Center for the American College Theatre Festival. Linehan Visual Art Scholars gain valuable professional experience through internships at area design companies and at the UMBC Imaging Research Center (IRC), a state-of-the-art animation and computer visualization facility.
Linehan Summer Research and Study Award
The Linehan Summer Research and Study Award provides support to a select group of Scholars every summer to engage in extended and in-depth study with international scholars and professional artists.
