2017-18 CAPAA AND RASA AWARD RECIPIENTS

The College of Arts and Humanities extends its congratulations to outstanding faculty who have been named 2017-18 recipients of the Creative and Performing Arts Awards (CAPAA) or Research and Scholarship Awards (RASA) from the University of Maryland’s Graduate School.

ABOUT CAPAA:

CAPPA supports artistic activities and are awarded to full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty. Faculty who receive a semester award are excused from teaching duties during the period for which the CAPAA was granted. Those who receive a summer CAPAA will receive a $9,000 stipend for two months during the summer for which the award is granted. To be eligible for the summer award the faculty member needs to hold a 9 – 9 ½ appointment, which means they do not have teaching responsibilities over the summer. The most recent CAPAA summer awardees will apply the award to summer 2017.

ARHU’s summer CAPAA recipients include:

Shannon Collis, Department of Art

Leslie Felbain, Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies

Lisa Nathans, Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies

Scot Reese, Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies

Patrik Widrig, Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies

Liese Zahabi, Department of Art
