The ACC Smithsonian ACCelerate Creativity and Innovation Festival is pleased to offer the new ACCelerate Student Fellowship. The ACCelerate Student Fellowship encourages new collaborations among ACCelerate Festival participants and the continued development of new innovations to address interdisciplinary challenges while fostering new connections across and among ACC faculty, staff, and students. At the conclusion of the fellowship, (no later than May 2023) the selected applicants will present their work, findings, and advances as part of a Smithsonian program (in-person or remote as circumstances allow.) Two fellowships are available for the 2022-2023 academic year. Funding up to $5,000 (provided by the ACCelerate Festival) will support each project.
