ACE Fellows Program

ACE Fellows Header

The Academic Community Engagement (ACE) Fellows program promotes and sustains community-engaged teaching, research, and scholarship. In this cohort-based program, ACE Fellows develop community-based projects congruent with their research, scholarship, and/or teaching interests. Fellows may either start a new project or develop existing work. Fellows receive a $1,000 award during each year of the 2-year fellowship; awards can be used toward any project-related expenses, including but not limited to: supplies for teaching a community-based course; travel to present at a conference; or honoraria for speakers and panelists. 

To be considered for the ACE Fellowship, interested faculty must submit an application, cover letter, and CV. In addition, applicants may choose to submit letter(s) of support from community partners, colleagues, and/or students. The Office of Civic & Community Engagement will contact each applicant’s Dean or Department Chair as part of the application process. Applications will be reviewed by a committee comprised of previous ACE fellows, members of the ACE Advisory Council, and community partners.
