Each year, undergraduate researchers from each ACC university gather at a host institution to present their research and creative scholarship at the annual ACC Meeting of the Minds (ACC MoM). All expenses are covered by the ACC Academic Consortium. In 2021, UNC-Chapel Hill will host the 2021 ACC MoM for the first time as a virtual conference, from April 9 to 11.

Virginia Tech’s Office of Undergraduate Research is currently accepting applications and will select up to five students to represent the university and present their research or creative scholarship at this conference. Learn more about the conference and apply here. The application deadline is January 25, 2021.

Please note that because of the virtual nature of the conference, you will need to indicate your preference of presentation format, as a full-length virtual presentation (10 minutes using PowerPoint, Prezi, or a similar platform) or an abbreviated presentation that will follow the “3 Minute Thesis” format. Students selected to represent Virginia Tech will have access to presentation preparation support and coaching provided by the Office of Undergraduate Research.
