The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) contributes funds from athletics to enhance scholarship of undergraduates through the Inter-institutional Academic Collaborative (ACC-IAC). The ACC-IAC Fellowship Program in Creativity and Innovation supports research, artistic, and scholarly activities that may be collaborative, international, or multi-institutional. The deadline for the 2018 ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation Fellowship is February 2, 2018. Applicants not awarded ACC-IAC funding may then consider applying to the Richter, Wake Forest Research Fellowship, or Arts & Humanities Fellowship programs, as appropriate.
This program, funded by the ACC collaborative, supports undergraduate research, artistic endeavors, and/or creative projects. Similar to the Wake Forest Research Fellowship (WFRF), this mechanism is designed to provide students with the opportunity to participate in intensive scholarship under the mentorship of a Wake Forest University faculty member across the summer months. Applications must be written by the student (see the link to the form, below), though it is expected that the content of the project will evolve from conversations between the student and the faculty mentor. In general, it is expected that ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation Fellowships will represent a “capstone” scholarship experience for the student.
