Limited Submission Announcement

The American Council on Education (ACE) Fellows Program prepares senior leaders to serve American colleges and universities. The ACE Fellows Program enables participants to immerse themselves in the culture, policies, and decision-making processes of another institution. Fellows spend an extended period of time on another ACE-member campus, working directly with presidents and other senior leaders, observing firsthand how the institution and its leaders address strategic planning, resource allocation, development, policy, and other issues and challenges. The program also includes participation in three week-long national seminars, visits to other campuses, attendance at national meetings, and contact with a national network of higher education leaders.

The nominating institution pays the salary and benefits of the fellow for the fellowship year and covers all interview and placement process expenses. The fellow is responsible for all living expenses during the fellowship year. Expenses to the nominating institution vary depending on the choice of placement in the program.
