Our fourth year BLA student Becca Good won ACC Creativity and Innovation Grant (ACCIAC).
“The ACCIAC is a competitive grant program to support student-led research projects in any discipline each summer, with awards of up to $2,000 which can go towards travel, supplies, stipend, and the like…This program directly connects undergraduate students to core ACC university missions of creativity and innovation. The ACCAC Fellows Program in Creativity and Innovation represents the conference’s excellence in, and commitment to, quality undergraduate education. Criteria for awards include, but are not limited to: originality, creativity, innovation, experimentation, and intellectual risk…Projects supported may include team-driven activities or individual projects, multi-university ventures, artistic endeavors, videos, and creative projects abroad. In 2015, 7 students from 6 of Virginia Tech’s 7 colleges received an ACCIAC grant to conduct a variety of student-led research projects.”
Becca intends to study the public spaces in various districts in Hong Kong over the summer. Also, she said: “I will develop it more throughout the summer months and then hopefully go to Hong Kong for a week to ten days toward the end of the summer.”
