ACC-IAC Summer Research and Collaborative Fellowships

ACC-IAC Fellows Program in Creativity and Innovation

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.

If awarded, an ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation Fellowship:

  • Provides up to $5000 to cover expenses related to the completion of the project (including living expenses).  Students must develop a budget as part of their application.

Important details to consider:

  • Student applying for the ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation Fellowship must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  • Applications require the full consent of a faculty mentor.
  • The fellowship is meant to provide an intensive scholarly experience for the student.  Students who receive an ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation may not take summer session classes, nor have additional employment during the summer months.
  • Completion of the project requires the submission of an abstract and presentation of the scholarly work at Undergraduate Research Day, which is held in the fall semester on Parent’s Weekend.  Students may also be asked to represent Wake Forest University at the ACC Meeting of the Minds annual conference.
  • Applications are due February 2, 2016.
  • Students who apply for the ACC-IAC Creativity and Innovation Fellowship and are denied, may choose to have their application considered for a Wake Forest Research Fellowship (WFRF). Please email Tammy Griffin (burketj@wfu.edu) if you would like to be considered.

ACC-IAC Summer Collaborative Research Fellowship

The program, funded by the ACC collaborative, supports undergraduate research, artistic endeavors, and /or creative projects.  In all aspects, this opportunity is similar to the ACC-IAC Fellowship Program in Creativity and Innovation, except that the student is expected to complete the project under the mentorship of faculty at another ACC-affiliated school.  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 member at the ACC school where the project is to be conducted.  In general, it is expected that ACC-IAC Summer Collaborative Research Fellowships will represent a “capstone” scholarship experience for the student.
