The Association of Academic Support Educators (AASE) and AccessLex Institute’s Center for Legal Education Excellence® are pleased to announce the 2022 recipients of the AccessLex-AASE ASP Faculty Scholarship Grant. Launched in 2021, the AccessLex-AASE ASP Faculty Scholarship Grant provides financial support and research mentorship to academic support educators as they pursue the development and publication of a research article. The purpose of the program is to contribute to scholarship in the field while advancing the professional development opportunities of Academic Support Faculty.
Scholars were competitively selected through a process that assessed their proposed writing topic and the articulated value of publishing for their professional advancement. For the next year, Scholars will engage with two mentors to assist in developing and completing a draft publication. The five 2022 Scholars will present on their writings at the Tenth Annual AASE Conference to be held May 2023 at the Santa Clara University School of Law.
