AccessLex-AASE ASP Faculty Scholarship Grant: Up to $5,000

Call for Proposals

Due April 24, 2023


AASE and AccessLex are dedicated to the academic and bar success of law students across the nation. An important point of this collaboration is to support the scholarship of academic support educators, especially those who are newer to the discipline and face various challenges in getting such support. Launched in 2021, this grant supports scholarship by ASP faculty in any area, with academic support-related articles preferred.

Selection of Scholars:

Scholars will be selected through an application process where applicants must describe their writing topic and explain how the writing relates to their career advancement (directed toward getting tenure, seeking tenure track positions, contributing to ASP scholarship, or other considerations). Applicants need not have a track record of publications; this grant may be used to jump-start an applicant’s scholarship. Applicants must be members of the AASE organization.

The grant subcommittee will use a blind review policy. At all stages of the process, voting committee members will not know the identity and institutional affiliation of grant applicants. Only a designated non-voting person will know the identity of the applicant and will handle applicant communications. You will be asked three questions related to your identity (name, email, and institution) which only the designated person will know. For all other questions, please do not disclose any identifying information. 

Fellowship Program for Scholars:

Upon selection, all scholars will participate in an approximately one-year fellowship program. The fellowship will include two mentors for each scholar to assist the scholar in completing a draft of an article. Scholars will be publicly announced at the annual AASE meeting in May 2023. The culmination of the fellowship will be a “Works-In-Progress” presentation at the May 2024 AASE Annual Conference, with a final draft for publication by December 31, 2024.

Important Dates:

Applications are now open to all AASE members, who can apply here. Applications will be due on April 24, 2023. Grant recipients will be announced at the 2023 AASE Annual Conference. Recipients will present their works-in-progress at the May 2024 AASE Annual Conference. Recipients will have a publishable law review draft on or before December 31, 2024. Grant funds will be awarded to recipients as follows: $2,000 on or near July 1; $1,000 after presenting the work-in-progress at the 2024 AASE Annual Conference, and $2,000 upon submission of a completed article draft in publishable form. (Grant recipients who receive an award but do not complete their project may be required to return the funds to AccessLex and/or AASE.) Grant recipients will be paired with mentors to meet with throughout the process.
