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.
