ACE Professional Development Fund 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.

Applications for grants will close on September 30, 2021. For more information and to access an application, please click HERE.

Thank you for attending this year's virtual conference. Attendees can access the Whova web app to communicate with each other and view resources for 3 months and for 6 months on the mobile app. In addition, the office will share an attendee list and link to professional development session recordings in the coming days.
