Creativity & Innovation Fellowships

The ACCAC Fellows Program in Creativity and Innovation supports undergraduates involved in student-driven projects at each of the ACC member campuses. Annually, each university receives $12,500 and agrees to award between two and five ACCAC Fellowships. (Some universities supplement the program with their own funds.)

This program directly connects undergraduate students to core ACC university missions of creativity and innovation. The ACCAC Fellows Program in Creativity and Innovation represents the conference’s excellence in, and commitment to, quality undergraduate education.

Criteria for awards include, but are not limited to:

  • Originality
  • Creativity
  • Innovation
  • Experimentation
  • Intellectual risk

Projects supported may include team-driven activities or individual projects, multi-university ventures, artistic endeavors, videos, and creative projects abroad.

Each university is responsible for selecting its Fellows. Examples of project outcomes include publication, artistic work, presentation, and video.

Each university will submit a preliminary (or final) report to the ACCAC by August 25th, and a final report by November 1st. This program is coordinated by each university’s appointee to the ACCAC Advisory Committee. Questions that relate to all universities should be addressed to
