Professional Development – Project Grants
Professional Development Grants provide support for ACE members to pursue projects and training to upgrade their knowledge and skills. Grants can be used to explore new technologies or concepts, solve everyday problems or work on team projects. The goal is to have the recipient share their knowledge and findings with the ACE membership.
Recipients of Development Grants are encouraged to present their findings at the ACE Annual Conference the summer following their grant.
See below for grant guidelines or application will be posted June 1, 2019.
Applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria to be considered for a grant.
Grants are competitive and meeting eligibility requirements does not guarantee you will receive a grant. Preference will be given to proposals with broad application so other members can benefit from the professional development experience.
