The Pro Humanitate Institute funds faculty-led initiatives and programs that connect Wake Forest faculty members’ teaching, research, and scholarship with the community locally, nationally, and globally. ACE mini-grants provide small scale funding that enables faculty to incorporate deeper connections with community in their work. Applications for funding are collected and responded to on a rolling basis. Any funding requests over $1,000 are approved by the ACE Advisory Council.
Applications for funding must be submitted by faculty and should enhance the applicant’s ability to teach, research, or further develop as a scholar that is community-facing. While ACE fellows may receive preferential consideration in funding decisions, applicants for funding are not required to be ACE fellows.

- transportation costs
- conference fees & travel associated with conference
- supplies for project (may include food)
Funding may not cover:
- Food (unless part of the project goals)
- Professional association memberships
