who is also an ACI member to be considered for these awards. Those students
receiving Fellowships also receive paid travel and registration to two ACI
Conventions, assignment to an industry mentor, and a summer internship, in some
cases. Available Fellowships include the ACI Presidents’ Fellowship, ACI Baker
