Architecture student Angela Serna-Geitz has been awarded a 2013-14 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Creativity and Innovation Fellowship. Her project, entitled “Textiles and weaving methods in Colombia,” was one of six by Virginia Tech undergraduate students selected to receive grants to pursue undergraduate research and creative scholarship opportunities that can enhance their undergraduate educational experience.
The program supports undergraduate students who are involved in independent research projects or creative works under the mentorship of faculty. Selected Virginia Tech scholars receive up to a $2,000 award that can be used as a stipend and/or direct support of expenses such as supplies, travel, and use of specialized research services. Angela’s faculty mentor is Prof. Paola Zellner Bassett.
