Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during a mentoring session?

Students from various schools in Wake and Durham counties are assigned to teams and meet at University facilities or at the offices of the architects, engineers, and construction managers. You’ll do hands-on activities such as building a bridge out of spaghetti and gumdrops or hand-sketches of your home. Special events may include tours of construction sites or campuses. Teams will collaborate to plan and create a project design and models to presentation at the Presentation and Awards Ceremony in the spring.

How will I be assigned to a team?

Teams generally meet weekly on Thursday afternoons from 4:00pm-6:00pm. On your on-line application, indicate which location you would prefer to meet at. We will try to meet your preferences. Once you have been assigned to a team, you will meet according to your team’s calendar.

What happens after I apply?

You will be added to an email list and receive an invitation to Student Orientation where you will receive information about this year’s program. Refer to our calendar for a full list of events.

What are my obligations?

To get the most of the ACE experience, we hope that you will regularly attend team meetings and events. Your mentors volunteer their time in preparing and participating in sessions for you. Out of respect for their efforts, please let your mentors know if you cannot attend a session.

Also, share your ideas, opinions and suggestions with your mentors and fellow students. Remember this program is for you – you can make it an even better program if you communicate your interests!

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Only students who have been active in ACE during the school year are eligible to apply for an ACE scholarship. Students who wish to be considered submit an on-line application when the application process begins in the spring. Winners will be chosen in consideration of their outstanding participation in ACE, academic record, and mentor recommendation, among other criteria.
