ACES Program Grants

About the ACES Program

Launched in January 2010 as a partnership between the American Cultures Center and the Public Service Center, the American Cultures Engaged Scholarship (ACES) Program aims to transform how faculty’s community-engaged scholarship is valued, to enhance learning for students through a combination of teaching and practice, and to create new knowledge that has an impact both in the community and the academy. 

ACES Course Grants are designed to provide faculty with the opportunity to develop, broaden, or deepen their research and teaching of community-engaged scholarship, and support community engagement. The ACES Program staff is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have in helping you meet this deadline.  

ACES Program Grant: Community-Engaged Learning and Remote Partnerships, Summer and Fall, 2020 (application cycle has ended)

Please note, the application deadline for this opportunity was June 15th. If you have received funding for this program or have any questions about it, please address them to ACES Program Director, Victoria Robinson, and Associate Director of the Public Service Center, Andrea Wise.  

ACES Program Grants are designed to provide faculty with the opportunity to develop, broaden, or deepen their research and teaching of community-engaged scholarship, and support community engagement. 

In the current condition of remote instruction, the ACES program is committed to supporting faculty and students in finding ways to continue the commitments, trust, and relationships that have been developed through community-university partnerships. This commitment to UC Berkeley's public service is reflected in the 2020 ACES Summer/Fall proposal cycle. Several priorities have been emphasized to support community-engagement and engaged scholarship, with a specific emphasis on remote partnerships. We encourage your application and thank you for the significant efforts being made to support our students and community partners in these difficult times. Review application.
