The specific objectives of Asprey CCAS Keeping Current are to support faculty in their efforts to 1) develop new research methods and skills that will lead to increased scholarly opportunities resulting in publications and conference presentations, 2) incorporate new expertise into their research programs, particularly those suitable for undergraduate student participation, and 3) integrate the newly acquired skills into the curriculum. Supported activities may include travel to a collaborator’s lab to learn new research techniques, attendance at a course/workshop, and hosting of a skills-based faculty workshop on the Vassar campus. A brief post-activity report is required. Past awards have been in the $300 to $2400 range.
