Undergraduate students have the opportunity to take part in our ACE Fellowship program. Applications are solicited each Fall semester and the program lasts an academic year.
In both the Fall and Spring semester, students engage in 20 hours of service work with the agency of their choice. In the Spring semester students write a research paper and make a presentation to members of the SMU community about their service experiences and research.
Fellowship applications can be located here and Fellowship Guidelines can be found here. For more information please contact Dr. Cruz.

BIO: "My major is Advertising with minors in Statistics and Photography. I have recently become very interested in the topic of education and have enjoyed reading on and researching my fellowship topic. On campus, I work in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center as a graphic designer and am a member of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity, One28, and Alternative Breaks. Off campus, I work full time at the Richards Group, an advertising agency. During the Spring 2013 semester, I am looking forward to studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After college, I aspire to go into the education field.
